The buzz of the day is that Microsoft unveiled a new home page design for MSN. You can see the new design at preview.msn.com. Let's compare the current and the preview:

Current: MSN Home Old

Preview: MSN Home New

So much more refreshing! As Greg Sterling noted, the MSN portal drives nearly 50% of Bing queries - that is significant.

The MSN Blog takes us back through the years, starting from 1995 through today - looking at the various MSN designs.

Here is a video from the design team on the changes:

Overall, I think many are happy with the new design.
