is anybody else seeing a whole new msn.com?
a whole new redesigned msn.com?

I'm on the east coast and using firefox 1.0 i'm seeing an entirely redesigned msn.com. xhtml strict..totally beta flavor. they still have a handful of bugs to fix, but not too shabby. Optimizing sites for it, in the current state is going to be cake. Alot of weight on interal links, and internal link anchor text. on page optimization. very little wait to outside links.

Yeap! It is running since this morning (here in Europe) as MSN standard search now! They did this frequently for some hours before over the last days.

You also see it behind Akamai (GNU/Linux) clusters when pinging it?

Finally seeing it here this afternoon. Checked this morning - Old MSN

5 minutes ago - All new with the MSN Beta search results.

Comon baby, bring me that traffic.

One thing disappeared: the old MSN Advanced Search,
something like search.msn.con/advanced.aspx,
but don't count on that.
It turned up as a dead link when I checked my site, I had a link to 4 advanced (boolean) searches.

I presume Advanced search will reappear, but with Beta results, once they fix other things. -Larry

One thing I noticed last night. When I search for "mykeyword" I got beta results. If I searched again I got the old search results. Kept hitting the button and the search would alternate between the old and the beta.

I am seeing something funny.

When I go to www.msn.com, it says "The requested page is not available.".

The header and footer are intact and below this text, there is a search box "Can't find what you're looking for?
Try MSN Search!".

No, its not because of the spyware on my pc, so don't ask me about that.

Anyone else seeing the same.

One more thing: When I search using that box, there are no search results displayed and says "Didn't get the results you expected"

The query string is [search.msn.com...]

Even beta.search.msn.com is the same.

Seems like MSN goofed up for the timebeing.
