TechPowerUp Part of the Beautiful Web with Internet Explorer 9

TechPowerUp is ready for the numerous enhancements Internet Explorer 9 brings to Windows 7 operating system. We have added IE9 Jumplists for your favorite site to work more like an application, more of a part of your desktop. When pinned to your Windows 7 taskbar using Internet Explorer 9, TechPowerUp behaves like an application. Clicking it launches the TechPowerUp front-page, with a TPU button that takes you to the site from wherever. The navigation buttons on IE9 set themselves to match the red color.

Further, right-clicking the TPU button on the Windows 7 taskbar shows you our Jumplist. Here, you can quickly launch the IE9 with your favorite area on TPU. Five of our latest reviews are displayed in a constantly updating list, so you can catch up with our latest content. To install the TechPowerUp IE9 Jumplist integration, simply drag the TechPowerUp favicon or tab from IE9, and drop it on to your Windows 7 taskbar. It stays there and launches TPU in a flash. Comments are welcome.

IE9 sucks ass, still can't disable cleartype that gives text that fuzzy look, chrome and FF are way better.
Try this. It is an alternative font renderer based on the one in ubuntu. That's what I use because clear type is too sharp/fuzzy sometimes.

The jumplist isn't working for me. When I tick the links, nothing happens.

Maybe this is why your site as well as one other i frequent can no longer be accessed with chrome. :(

It is technically just a shortcut, but with Jumplists (shortcuts to key areas of the site and reviews), something merely pinning a URL from Chrome or Firefox doesn't give. Also, launching a pinned IE9 jumplist gives you a shortcut back to TPU on the browser navigation bar for the session.
lulz, I knew about this when I had the RC 1 for IE9

I like it. :toast:

OT: Is having IE, FF, Chrome, and Opera all installed, pinned and opened with multiple tabs each at the same time on a regular basis normal? Jesus I need to get out more...

Before today I cared about as much about IE and it's "features" as I did about, say, Facebook or Limewire but this is pretty freakin' cool. The excellent general visual integration with my Win 7 theme is really nice too (should be that way of course but sitll worth noting). Way too early to tell if it'll be default but so far I'm pleasently surprised.

Works fine here, just went to homepage, grabbed teh icon from address bar and dragged it to the taskbar. After clicking in to the site from the pinned icon, jumplist worked.

Neat stuff!

Why have all the browsers taken the Chrome look all of a sudden?

slimmer interface for netbooks/low res notebooks.

Hooray for proprietary stuff that no one will ever use! :p Just kidding -- it's actually pretty cool, but I wish MS would extend this stuff to support other browsers in their OS. It would be painfully easy.

Sure but of course they would never do that. It took a antitrust ruling to get them to de-integrate it from their OS's themselves.

I don't know if it's official but that stands to reason.

I notice that when I pin TPU to the task bar I lose the menu bar (which was on before and had to be reset) and I completely lose Google Toolbar which manage add-ons says in all enabled and the default. GTB no longer apears in any of the drop downs to make it show again.
I also lose the home button at the top right.
Hmmm ...

Anyone got any tweak tips such as moving cache/temp folder?
