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.

With the new design, which can be previewed here, and toured here, you will notice that it is not so full as it used to be. Things are better organized, the Bing search box stands out much more prominently, and the blocky text links are finally a thing of the past - good riddance!

Microsoft is so far behind Google and Yahoo, and is now really trying to turn their losing streak concerning their online business, around. Reports claim that the number of Bing searches has improved with this new design, during testing.

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.
