MIX Online wasn’t the only website getting a refresh this week as Microsoft.com’s own frontpage is experimenting with a little redecoration. “tfraser” from the Channel9 forums noticed he was randomly redirected to a new page at Microsoft.com where they’re testing a newer itteration of the homepage.
Currently there’s not that much different except the instant fly-out navigation tabs which makes diving down to sub-sites much easier compared to the current “live view” solution. Search and the recognizable green Live Search search button also receives more attention on the header. Other than that it’s still fairly uninteresting.
