Microsoft Corp. Tuesday redesigned its portal, MSN.com, putting emphasis on its new messaging services and communities.
Currently in beta testing, the new MSN.com includes a new interface that incorporates all of Microsoft's (MSFT) portal services in an easy-to-use fashion, the company said. Its newest feature is MSN Web Communities, which provide access for users to create personal Web sites using a variety of communications tools.
Also updated are personalization features, customized resources, as well as a message center providing chat and instant messaging services and access to Hotmail accounts. The site is expected to go live during the Comdex trade show next week in Las Vegas.
"By combining a new MSN.com design with a powerful new way for people to create and customize Web communities, we believe consumers across the board will find MSN.com the home page of choice."
