Microsoft starts rolling out new MSN homepage

The redesign features a new butterfly logo as well as 30 updates based on loads of customer feedback.

Among the new features are:

TrendWatch - highlights of the day's top Twitter trends
Hyper-local Tweets - shows you tweets based on your location
My Cities - lets you save up to three cities to keep up with
MSN Local - enables the display of relevant local information
Hotmail - see your inbox on the MSN homepage

Some will see the new design when they go to MSN.com, some will not just yet.

Someone else pointed out that you can also check it out now if it has not rolled out in your area yet, by going to the following link.

its about time it had an update, but to be fair... MSN is just the page you dont really look at when you start IE, i actually cant remember the last time i accessed it, being a FF user and all

I personally do not use the site, but its a lot more appealing then the original. Since its IE's default homepage, a lot more will start using it just because it looks more 2010 then the prior version.

About time it got a refresh. That page looked the same for years.

I like it but I hardly ever use it.

Does anyone know how to get the new version to show up instead of the old one. The new one has been showing up then I deleted all my cookies and the old page starting showing up again. I prefer the new one. Thanks
