How many people would like to see their favorite site with a Windows 8.1 Live Tile?

I know I would.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
            <square70x70logo src="tiny.png"/>
            <square150x150logo src="square.png"/>
            <wide310x150logo src="wide.png"/>
            <square310x310logo src="large.png"/>
            <polling-uri src="http://notifications.buildmypinnedsite.com/?feed=http://stackoverflow.com/feeds&amp;id=1"/>
            <polling-uri2 src="http://notifications.buildmypinnedsite.com/?feed=http://stackoverflow.com/feeds&amp;id=2"/>
            <polling-uri3 src="http://notifications.buildmypinnedsite.com/?feed=http://stackoverflow.com/feeds&amp;id=3"/>
            <polling-uri4 src="http://notifications.buildmypinnedsite.com/?feed=http://stackoverflow.com/feeds&amp;id=4"/>
            <polling-uri5 src="http://notifications.buildmypinnedsite.com/?feed=http://stackoverflow.com/feeds&amp;id=5"/>

    I prefer chrome and a bookmark. Otherwise it's two tiles for chrome and it's unfair for the other tiles. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Oct 18 '13 at 12:16
  • I must admit I haven't used windows 8.1 but can you not create links to websites on the start page? – Richard Tingle Oct 18 '13 at 12:17

    @RichardTingle: You can, but you can also add code to your webpage to create a live tile that shows, e.g., the top three hot questions. – user1228 Oct 18 '13 at 13:38

Not to say what you have isn't cool, but you can do this already:

Admittedly, it doesn't look as nice as yours but I don't like the tile screen anyways.
