MSN UK revamps home page, makes it customisable


MSN UK has redesigned its portal, making it customisable and easier to navigate. They claim that the MSN homepage is the most popular in the UK, visited by 7 million customers every month.

Customisation includes changing the theme colours, easy access to channels from the top of the page, ‘best of’ preview panel, customised news headlines, and weather.

MSN said it believes the new look will make it easier for people to find the content they’re after. It bears similarities to other personalised home pages including Yahoo and MyWay, though it does look quite good. There’s a Flash demo of the new features available the first time you visit the new site.

Topping it off, it now links into Windows Live Search, Microsoft’s ‘Live’ re-branded search engine.

What do you think of it?
