MSN Homepage test

leave a comment »

MSN is conducting a new homepage test (http://v11.www.msn.com/?vv=600). I used to be the product manager for this property, and ran the process for the current design in 2003-05. This new one isn’t much different, and tries to do a little more customization and personalization. To be honest (and with respect for the hard work that’s gone into this), I don’t like it much. It feels like they shoe-horned in Windows Live modules on the right side, along with a bit of content like weather. Not very cleanly integrated. I think Yahoo did a nicer job with their last redesign.
