Wanted to highlight a recent find today on what a member on SEOchat discovered as his MSN homepage yesterday. Appears that MSN is testing their new search engine integrated into the current homepage layout. It appears to be just served only to a limited number of people. Its not as flashy as the current MSN layout, but its basically the same information without all the graphics or CSS elements. Maybe they are going for more of a simple easy on the eyes design, like well you know who. Its worth a look to see what the new search engine will look like on the homepage. It could be just another early test and not reflective of the roll out next year.
Before hand you could only see the single search field with several options if you visited the location of the MSN beta.
Check out how MSN will look (possibly) when they finally roll out of beta: http://www.msn.com/defaultpf.armx
