Conclusion: I hate it! But then I only use the web version when at work, at home I access it through Eudora. Just means I'll check my mails less often from work. Hmm, maybe my boss talked with Microsoft ;).
I think the reason I like it,and other's don't, is because I was prepared. I knew how it was going to work before the launch because I was so bored that I watched the preview.
No problems here. Seems pretty clear. Although a flatscreen/laptop may have issues.
>> Hmmm...ADVERTS! why is here sound and video playing?
Mine aren't playing sound (becuase I disabled the feature in IE; also prevents some viruses). Very annoying but they had this before.
I think it's actually too slick. Maybe it because I market to an older crowd, but the font on all the tabs and buttons is way too tiny. Anyone over the age of 40 is going to be squniting. It also makes it harder to find the button you need and since they moved them all over the place, it's a little hard to find them.
The filter does seem better and to tell you the truth, I would swear they are now bouncing junk rather than dumping it in my junk mail. I've only gotten three emails in my junk box today and normally its more like 10 - 15.
Knew it! It's just Brett. They are trying to convert him to an IE-user. :)
Guess the design is not that bad, but did they really need that additional page that shows first when you log in? When I go there, it's to check my emails, so I want to see that first thing.
<added>Oh, and having about the only black text on the page being one of the few links is totally stupid IMHO.</added>
Yeah, they probably got his IP banned. ;)
>>No problems here using Opera.
I stuck with Opera 6.05. Found later versions too slow. I can access Hotmail, but it looks like a pile of garbage with text overflowing images.
I will stick with yahoo! for my throw away accounts...
