Added.

 

Notifications delivered via RSS is something I sorely wanted from IE as soon as I learned about being able to pin sites on IE9 so I'm really happy about this!

It's not exactly clear which one is neowin, I guess that's in the flip / read mode?

I spent a little time doing this for my forum yesterday, it's always good to be forward thinking (Y)

Well its obvious on mind due to there being no chance its one of the others, and I think it may need a little tweak as it doesn't flip to show a neowin title at all, it flips between large font headline and small font headline.

Will have a play at adding a forum one tomorrow, that's easier to tweak.

Works, but having IE11 as a default browser doesn't make it worth it.

Just want to clarify that the live tile technically doesn't flip, it just cycles the main headlines. Gosh I hate the inconsistent UX in Windows 8.1, if only it behaved just like Windows Phone.

 

The good news for me is that I didn't know pinned sites could add that behavior. That is awesome! :|

It's indeed cool, but it doesn't work on my Surface RT - the same tile works fine on my desktop.

 

Anyone else had it working/not working on RT?
