Took a quick look and tried it, kind of a neat little tool.

Sorry for being dense, but I played with it and I don't see any RSS aggregation being done. Maybe they're sending me to a different sever.

Very interesting news, but nothing on that URL but a search box as far as i can see. Is it still there for you guys in the US?

Duh... the penny dropped. You have to use IE to view the page. Then click the little link "show"

Looks good to me - no page refreshes when adding and removing feeds. Fully dynamic pages. Nice ;)

"The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list."

Using a dynamic DSL from Verizon.

ADDED
This could be the problem
SORBS:
dnsbl.us.sorbs.net/cgi-bin/lookup

Seems to be blocking every dynamic Verizon DSL IP address.

Is MS using their list?

Well, it was nice while it lasted - i'm out too.

I wonder if they're planning on using that start.com domain for something public. It ould be a very nice domain for a lot of stuff. As far as i recall it was last used for marketing related to Win95 way back.

At the bottom of that page is a link I have not seen before for other beta services:

[sandbox.msn.com...]

works fine for me in firefox. Looks good. I've only just started using bloglines but this has the beginnings of something much better.........

<added> Just noticed the little "Now in new Firefox flavor!" text at the bottom of the page. Looks like they don't want to risk upsetting all the anti-competition commissions again </added>

Working fine in Firefox here too. Nice fast interface.

i don't get it.

I see the text "Now in new Firefox flavor!" below the searchbox, but absolutely nothing else. Then, when i open it in IE i get exactly the same layout as i left last time i tried it.

All the way on the left side of the screen, in the blue header, there's a white link labeled "show". Click that link.

Funny, the "show" link doesn't show for me in IE but it does in FF.

no, the show link doesn't show in FF, only in IE (for me)

Anyway, i can use it on IE now again. I've got to say that the way it stores recent searches is cool :)
