Microsoft today announced that it will be releasing a new version of MSN.com designed specifically for the upcoming Windows 8 platform. The company says that the new design has been developed to work well with both touch screen displays, and traditional mouse and keyboard input, and users should expect to see performance improvements throughout MSN as well.
At first glance, you will notice the new look and feel. The new MSN is a full-screen experience that is clean, simple and built for touch. Whether you’re reading daily headlines or catching up on the latest gossip, the experience is intuitive and consistent. The content flows from the homepage to channels without interrupting the visual layout, and you’ll know what stories are most important, just by viewing the size of the story tile.
