What is a Web Slice?
A Web Slice is a specific portion of a webpage that you can subscribe to, and which enables you to see when updated content—such as the current temperature, or a changing auction price—is available from your favorite websites. Once you have subscribed to the Web Slice, it appears as a link on the Favorites bar. When the Web Slice is updated, the link on the Favorites bar will appear with bold formatting. You can then click the link to see the updated content. Web Slice is feature of Internet Explorer 8 which can be downloaded for free from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/default.aspx.
