Microsoft’s Windows Live on Firefox
Windows Live, after a much anticipated launch by Bill Gates & company, has initially forgotten that not all Internet users prefer the Internet Explorer browser. On their launch date, Live.com, was not supported by the Firefox browser, ignoring almost 13% of web users.
The Windows Live launch did not go over to well with Firefox users, and if it had, Microsoft may have been able to win back some brownie points in the browser aware community. That being said, two weeks after launching, Windows Live is finally Firefox friendly.
Additionally, it seems that Windows Live is now also offering its Windows Live Mail Beta, for users who have Hotmail accounts. A little bird emailed me last week to tell me that The “What’s New” section of Live.com is working, “and it takes me to a page with links to various new Live services, most of which appear to be up and running, including the new Windows Live Mail Beta (Hotmail account required).”
