we have rebuilt MSN from the ground up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. The new MSN brings together the world’s best media sources along with data and services to enable users to do more in News, Sports, Money, Travel, Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, and more. It focuses on the primary digital daily habits in people’s lives and helps them complete tasks across all of their devices. Information and personalized settings are roamed through the cloud to keep users in the know wherever they are.Microsoft Previews Completely Revamped MSN.COM [blogs.microsoft.com]
At the top of the MSN homepage, users have quick access to what we call the Services Stripe. This allows easy access to personal services to stay on top of what’s happening in your life. With a quick hover, you can easily check your email, browse your OneDrive, or even access your OneNote notebooks. We’ve also integrated popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, Office 365 and Skype.


Here's the preview

I got this:

"You are using an outdated browser. For a faster, safer browsing experience, upgrade for free today."

The link took me to an Internet Explorer download page.

It didn't say how to install it on a Mac.

I liked it. Not groundbreaking, but good. I had some quibbles about the carets used for some drop down menus (looked like the arrows used for non-drop down areas on the rest of the site).

MS is nothing if not consistent

we have rebuilt MSN from the ground up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world [...] Information and personalized settings are roamed through the cloud

Suggested edit: We understand that everyone else did this years ago, but we're still really proud of it!

In today's *responsive* world this new layout falls a bit short. Horizontal scrolling is not one of my hobbies.
