ASP.Net Controls for IE8 released!

I’m happy to announce we just released a Web Application Toolkit for Internet Explorer 8!

The goal of this Web Application Toolkit is to leverage the new features in Internet Explorer 8 (Web Slices, Accelerators and Visual Search Providers) to extend the reach of your Web site and services also to those users that are not on your site.


The kit include sample projects and the following controls:

  • ASP.NET Web Slice control: Enabling users to subscribe to your content directly within a Web page
  • ASP.NET Accelerator control: To facilitate the access to your Web application or services from any Web page through contextual menu options
  • ASP.NET Visual Search control: Allowing users to search within your site through the browser Visual Search Box
  • ASP.NET Browser Helper control: Used to detect if the visitor of your site is using Internet Explorer 8

Happy coding!
