Control the way your site looks in Windows 8 Metro

I just stumbled upon this cool site,


It allows you to control the tile created in windows 8 metro UI for your web site when a user pin it to start menu.

Here is KWizCom site before:


and here is after:


Now, I know I am no design genius, but still – much better, no?

All you need to do is upload a 114x114 image, and add this code to your home page HTML, right inside your <head> tag:

<meta name="application-name" content="KWizCom Corp"/>
<meta name="msapplication-TileColor" content="#ffffff"/>
<meta name="msapplication-TileImage" content="002a8685-b8ff-4a45-8922-fcb0966fcb43.png"/>

I wish we could add a parameter for search, to have a text box inside, or maybe some more functionality, but right now we can control the background color, image and caption.
