New MSN for Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 unveiled

Microsoft has revealed a brand new interface for MSN.com that will greet the users on Internet Explorer 10 and Windows 8 users. The new interface has been designed exclusively for Windows 8, since the all new MSN will be the first thing you experience when you launch Internet Explorer 10 on your new device. MSN.com will be the default home page for Internet Explorer 10.

MSN for Windows 8 will be available from October 26th and will give you a place where you can be informed, decompress and let your curiosity reign. From the updated user interface to fast speed and comprehensive content, MSN promised to showcase what it does best – instant access to the information you want.

When we saw what Windows 8 and IE 10 could make possible, we saw possibilities we had never before imagined.  We thought deeply about how you could interact with MSN in an increasingly touch and tablet-friendly world.  We envisioned something completely new and refreshing that would surprise and delight.  Something built from the ground up that harnesses the new technical capabilities in Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10, says the blog post.

Over the years, the MSN home page has changed to keep in touch with the times. The latest avatar tries to give it the ‘Metro’ look to complement the Windows 8 and Windows Phone UI.

The last time MSN radically changed its deign, it did not go down too well, as can be seen from the comments. We only hope that Windows 8 users will love the new look.
