With the assistance of the IE8 team at the Add-on-Con CodeFest, I was able to complete an Accelerator for IE8 that lets anyone share information with other services such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Delicious, and a variety of other services within the IE8 browser — very similar to Shareaholic for Firefox. It can be downloaded here.
The highlight of the event for me was the inclusion of Shareaholic in the IE8 release keynote by Dean Hachamovitch, the GM of Internet Explorer. It was certainly a privilege, and I enjoyed every minute of it!
I stitched together this short 02:53 video from the main keynote recording. Hope you like it!
Full keynote video can be viewed here.
It didn’t take long to go from nothing to keynote ready. IE8 is a step in the right direction in making it easier for developers wanting to extend Internet Explorer easily — however I do already have a wish list for the IE8 team :)
A big thank you for your support, for without which none of this would be possible. Lots more coming very soon – stay tuned! Also, please keep those suggestions coming, we’re listening.
