One of the coolest things about Internet Explorer 9 is certainly the integration into Windows 7. And site pinning is the feature that pops to the top for most users. If you haven’t seen it, site pinning is the ability to make your favorite sites just one click away by dragging their tab or address bar favicon to your Windows 7 taskbar.
To show more people the magic of site pinning, Microsoft Windows Explorer team is holding a little sweepstakes on its Facebook fan page – “Pin it. Win it!”
“Just pick from 20 popular sites optimized for Internet Explorer 9 and build your dream taskbar. Complete the sweepstakes entry and be entered to win one of four great prize packages worth $9,000 each focused on four different passions – shopping, music, travel, and entertainment! (US residents only for the sweepstakes),” revealed Microsoft.
The sweepstakes is open now and ends November 2.
