Windows Live beta

Windows Live beta.

I test drived it and feel it’s like Google personalized page, a portal like homepage, you can integrate your content such as email, flickr RSS feed and a lot of third-party gadgets into one convenient place. AJAX technique is used so very little page reload is needed and drag-and-drop is also usable. As a matter of fact, I am more interested in Windows Live Mail and Messenger. But up to date they are still in development and sign up is not available yet.

UPDATE: Today (3/7/06) I was invited to try the new Windows Live Mail beta, which is supposed to give to those “Hotmail VIPs” as in the invitation email (I feel a little bit flattered though I never use Hotmail to deal with any of my emails… :) ). I feel it’s more like a “web-based traditional email client”. The speed is good, but there are ad’s flashing on the page. It’s not firefox friendly definitely, because you will not be able to access some of the options if you are with firefox browser. Anyway, if you are interested in finding out how Hotmail is going to respond to Gmail‘s big popularity, you’d better try it out by yourself.
