Hotmail Kahuna: Start.com for mail

Category: Showcase

It appears that the rogue start.com group at Microsoft is at it with mail. According to some, Kahuna, the next generation hotmail, has just gone internal beta1.

  • Using AJAX to suppress page reload
  • Emulatiing outlook a lot
  • Mail will support chinese characters. But Folder list doesn’t.
  • Contacts will represent all my msn messenger contacts.
  • Progressing bar is yellow and sits in lower-left corner (instead of that red bar in upper-right)
  • Note the URL mail.start.com (btw, try out www.start.com/3/ )
  • For now seems passport has some technical problem, so currently no firefox capatibility result.

The biggest thing that I see on the screenshot is banner ads! :)
