If you’re using Internet Explorer 9 beta on Windows 7 and have a blog on WordPress.com, you might have notice that “Charts on your stats page load faster — thanks to new canvas element support — and each WordPress.com site also includes a high-res icon for your browser, taskbar, or shortcuts — handy when you want to “pin” a blog.”
“When you sign into your blog, you can pin it and get extra tasks that make blogging easier and faster. A logged-in user can quickly access links to dashboard to write new post, moderate comments, upload new file, or view blog statistics. (Each task only appears if the user has that task’s capability) A custom list also displays up to 5 latest posts for current blog context. You can also pin other blogs, too. When you do, an icon appears that lets you subscribe to blog feed, signup for a free blog, read Freshly Pressed, and access WordPress.com Support and forums,” explains Joy Victory.
“To Pin: Just visit a blog in a IE9 tab, grab the tab, and drop it onto the taskbar at the bottom of your desktop. When you pin a site, it’ll either show up as a large WordPress logo or as your own Blavatar if you’ve uploaded one.”
