MSN Releases New Homepage

Last week MSN released a new version of their www.msn.com homepage to 10% of the U.S. population.  If you’re part of that lucky 10% you should now be seeing a cleaner, more simple looking MSN homepage with a white background.  Something like this:

MSN Homepage New

I unfortunately am not part of the 10% who received the new MSN homepage so I’m still stuck with the original, darker homepage with a blue background.  Like this:

MSN Homepage Blue

If you’re like me and can’t see the new MSN homepage, you can find a preview at www.msn.com/preview.aspx.  MSN is expected to roll out the new homepage to everyone by January 2010.

I personally want to commend MSN for the new homepage look.  In the past year and a half there have been several search engines that have launched with a darker, more mysterious look and have failed to capture market share!  Does anyone remember SearchMe or Cuil???  So, good job MSN!  Way to learn from the mistakes of others.

What do you think about the new MSN homepage look?
