New Microsoft Homepage Preview

July 25th, 2006 by Patrick S

Microsoft have a public preview of their new and upcoming home page (aka www.microsoft.com ) 

The new page dosn’t take up a whole page width (not on my monitor anyway) and is a whole lot more streamlined and a whole lot more JavaScript.

You can test it out right now-check it out here http://preview.microsoft.com/en/us/default.aspx

Edit: Hey, Zack ‘ere. Just wanted to add, Microsoft are jumping on the “Web 2.0” bandwagon, yeh Patrick’s right in saying there’s a lot of JScript, but it’s actually ‘Atlas’, Microsoft’s version of AJAX on the page. It’ll run as if it’s a Windows desktop in the end… but just as a web page… strange I know 😛

    Gone: ‘We’re sorry, but there is no Microsoft.com Web page that matches your entry.’

    intersting behaviour, when I use FireFox, I effectively get a 404; but when I use IE 7 (Beta 3), although it does not render (there are some JavaScript errors), I don’t get a 404. hmm…

  4. Patrick S Says:

    I can still access it…Perhaps IE7 only allws you to access it.
    On a side note when i try access it from Fire Fox it redirects me to the main Microsoft Page with no new changes.
