Microsoft unveils new MSN site design

Comparing the new MSN with the old MSN, it is about time. In an effort to get more web surfers to use Bing, a desperate effort was made to "fix" MSN. The web is evolving, and web users are more savvy - people have been expecting a better design for quite some time.

Finally Microsoft is coming to the party!

On Tuesday Microsoft will be rolling out the new design for its MSN Web portal in the U.S.
