Microsoft IE 8 Introduces Web Slices

Today I learned about IE 8’s new Web Slices. In concept they may be very useful if web developer implement them.

In a nutshell, web slices allow a use to “watch” a portion of a web page for changes. Very useful for ecommerce sites when you want to watch a price, or product availability.

I just finished implementing them on’s product pages. As a 1st try, I am only including the price area of the page in the content. It appears that the CSS is not included in the web slice, so formatting is an issue.

If you have IE 8 installed, check it out and let me know your thoughts.
