Slacker In Internet Explorer 9 Promo
San Diego-based Slacker, the personalized Internet radio service, said today that it has linked with Microsoft's new Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser. As part of the launch of IE9, the firm said it will provide a free month of its premium service, Slacker Radio Plus, when users "pin" the service to the IE9 taskbar. One of the new features in IE9 is the ability to "pin" sites to the browser, showing a logo that links directly to the site, and also allows those sites to send notifications to users, control media playback, and more. In Slacker's case, the personalized radio service is allowing users to mark songs as favorites, ban and skip songs, and change stations from its thumbnail.
