MSN Beta Testing Redesigned Home Page

While doing some work this afternoon I noticed that MSN has started to beta test a redesigned homepage at beta.msn.com. In case it’s unavailable when you check (things like this tend to come and go quickly), I’ve posted a screen cap here. The page incorporates the same type of customization “modules” currently seen at Start.com. One module (not working when I tested) allows you to add local news headlines to the page by entering a Zip Code or city name. A search box is still found at the top of the page with a link to click to select either web, news, images, Encarta, or local search. Another search box, located on the left side of the page, searches MSN Entertainment. Btw, I had better luck looking and using the page with IE than with Firefox. (-:
