Hmm, every programm supports Jump Lists, if you point to the right click list on the superbar. Under pinned every file type that is associated with the pinned application can be linked to. But remember: The file or shortcut must be physicaly present somewhere.

I'm using this with Winamp and WebRadio shortcuts to shoutcast playlists. I simply save a station in my user folder under a subfolder Toolbars/Pinned and drag it to the superbar to pin it. Really handy imho.

Not every program support that. There ain't support for it in Zune, Steam or Firefox for example, at least yet.

Firefox works... Only the default application for a certain filetype can pin shortcuts. So if firefox is your default browser you can pin any web shortcut to it. At least it works for me...

But it only works with Firefox when you open an .html file via windows explorer for example. And in 99,9999999% you open a website by typing its adress or clickling on a link and this does not add the site to the recent part of the jump lists

I'm finding the utility of these new "jump lists" to be....lacking. I hope more applications start to take advantage of them, or find new and different ways to use them, otherwise I think it's a feature that is just going to gather a lot of dust.
