A jQuery Plugin for adding IE9 features (site pinning, site mode, etc.) to your websites. Several new features of Internet Explorer 9 are designed to enhance the browsing experience of consumers by enabling sites that leverage certain features to behave like applications on the desktop when those sites are ‘pinned’ to the taskbar in Windows 7. A user pins a site by dragging the site’s tab (or favicon in the address bar) to the taskbar. For all sites, IE9 will create a default experience (called ‘site mode’) that will use information about the site to create an instance of the browser customized to look specific to that site. Developers can also add specific meta tags and script commands to extend these features to further customize user’s pinned experience of the site.

The purpose of the pinify jQuery plugin is to enable developers to safely leverage IE9 side mode features with simple commands and no need for additional browser checks.
