LiveSlices Customises IE8's Web Slices For Gmail And Other Sites

If you're keen on Internet Explorer 8 but haven't quite gotten into the auto-updating "Web Slices," the LiveSlices site makes it super easy to track Gmail, RSS, Twitter and other feeds from a drop-down menu button.

Normally, a web developer has to create a custom "Web Slice" for IE8 users, which basically creates a stylized RSS feed that can be glimpsed at from a drop-down item in the bookmarks toolbar or menu. LiveSlices saves Gmail, Twitter, Flickr, and most any site with an RSS feed the trouble by creating simple-to-install Web Slices for them. In some cases, like Gmail and Twitter, you'll have to provide your login credentials; LiveSlice's privacy policy simply states that your username and password is the only thing that will be transferred to a third party, like Google, to log in and grab Web Slice feed data.

If you're using Internet Explorer 8 and want an alternative means of keeping up on your social updates, news sites, or your Gmail messages, LiveSlices looks like a worthwhile browse. You can install its Web Slices without registering, but signing up lets you save your slice settings across browsers.
