AdaptiveBlue there comes a new version of the semantic browser extension Glue (previous coverage) which allows you to create a browser-based social network around the things you and your friends find online. This latest release, four months in the making, finally makes Glue compatible with Internet Explorer - a move which Glue's creators hope will allow them to tap into a wider, more mainstream audience.Today from
Glue works to connect you with your friends by revealing to other Glue users what interests you on the web (and vice versa). It automatically tracks your activity across a number of web sites including Amazon, Last.fm, Netflix, Yahoo! Finance, Wine.com, Citysearch, Flixster, Goodreads, Wikipedia, and more. From your interactions and those of your friends, Glue builds a contextual network that can then be used to provide you with recommendations based on what music, movies, books, etc. that your friends like the most.
You can also interact with the items being tracked via the Glue plugin which features a "like" button and another "2 Cents" button which lets you leave a comment about whatever it is you're viewing.
As with the previously released Firefox plugin, the Glue IE plugin also delivers the same type of interactions as you would expect: the connected conversations around everyday things, recommendations, and web-wide "top lists" that include the top items across the entire Glue network.
You can grab the Glue IE plugin from the main page of the Glue web site here. Note: the "Download" button still features the Firefox logo only at this time, but clicking the button reveals the IE download is available as well.
