  • Internet Explorer 9 users snag exclusive holiday freebies

    first_imgThings like multiple profile support and reduced memory usage are nice and all, but what people really want from their web browser is free booty. No, not that kind — though the Internet is certainly happy to supply it. I mean freebies from some of your favorite web apps.From now until Christmas, Internet Explorer 9 users can score some nice goodies over on The Beauty of the Web Holiday Offers site. Right now, for example, you can take an extended trial of Slacker — three whole months as opposed to the usual one.Upcoming offers are pretty similar, with extended-play free trials of AOL Radio, Pandora, Grooveshark, Flixster, and Hulu Plus on the schedule. Zynga’s tossing in some free virtual horseshoes for the Pioneer Trail fans, and TicketMaster and Fandango will both offer up five bucks towards any ticket purchase.To take advantage of one of the offers, just click it on the main page and then follow the instructions. You’ll need to drag the site’s icon to your taskbar and pin it and then jump through the required hoop when it loads in IE9.It’s actually a great way to familiarize yourself with IE9’s taskbar pinning abilities, which are pretty slick. For example, when you pin Slacker Radio, you can hover over its taskbar icon and use the integrated controls to pause and restart the tunes, skip and ban tracks you don’t like, and hear the ones you do.There  are a couple caveats here, of course. For one, the Holiday Offers are “limited availability” — though specific numbers aren’t given. They’re also U.S. only, and you’ve got to have Internet Explorer 9 installed (obviously) to take home the prizes.More at Beauty of the Weblast_img read more
