    Microsoft Launches Outlook.com Web-Based Email Service


    Microsoft is betting that a new simplified interface and a name change will improve its Web-based email fortunes. Though it's still in the lead worldwide, according to the latest number from comScore, the company's Hotmail service has steadily been losing ground to Google's Gmail.

    Well, it looks alright. Unfortunately, for those of us who left years ago, and now have everything registered to our somebody@gmail.com account...it's too much work to change again. Plus, I've registered a domain name through Google, my wife and I have a Google Apps account and we have a shared family calendar that we use between our computers and smartphones. Unforunately, for MS, I'm tied to Google for the forseeable future.

    I like the UI a lot better than Hotmail.

    It's not working on Opera, my current browser of choice, so Gmail will have to remain for now.
