IE 8 Accelerator Sample Example

This is an example of an IE 8 Accelerator. It doesn't tell you how to create one but it is itself a definition for an accelerator. This is a very simple one that adds an Accelerator that will just redirect the user to OfficePoint when clicked.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

    <os:openServiceDescription xmlns:os="">



                <os:name>Visit OfficePoint</os:name>


                <os:description>Visit my site</os:description>


            <os:activity category="Visit">

                <os:activityAction context="document">

                    <os:execute action="" method="get" />





In order to add an Accelerator you'll need add a button that adds the service.




<title>Untitled Page</title>



<form id="form1">


<button id="myButton1" onclick="window.external.AddService('http://localhost/OfficePointAccelerator.xml')">

Add OfficePoint Accelerator
