Accelerators and Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

March 30, 2009

Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans has discussed the new Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 in recent posts.  Several Microsoft business clients have expressed interest in the new efficiency feature in IE8, Accelerators.  In this post Onsite will discuss this new feature in IE8.

How many steps does it take with your current browser to map an address, translate a word, or perform other routine tasks online? Until now it was likely a series of cutting and pasting information from one web page to another. Now there’s a better way. The new Accelerators in Internet Explorer 8 help you quickly perform your everyday browsing tasks without navigating to other websites to get things done.

Simply highlight text from any webpage, and then click on the blue Accelerator icon that appears above your selection to obtain driving directions, translate and define words, email content to others, search with ease, and more. For example, with the “Map with Live Maps” Accelerator in Internet Explorer 8, you can get an in-place view of a map displayed directly on the page.

You can discover other useful Accelerators by selecting the More Accelerators option’s Accelerators gallery on the right-click menu, or visit Microsoft. You can easily delete, disable, or enable Accelerators by clicking on Manage Add-ons from the Tools button on the upper right-hand corner of your browser window.

Internet Explorer 8 includes a number of useful Accelerators to get you started. You can add more by going to the Internet Explorer Gallery to customize the browser with Accelerators from Live Search, eBay, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, Facebook, and other sites in a way that works for you.

The above examples of IE8 Accelerators from Microsoft should get you started.  If you have any further questions regarding IE8 Accelerators kindly email or call Onsite Computer Services today.
