About the New Update – My Feel
February 5, 2006

I am sure that you all by now should have noticed changes on MSN Space (, if not, now you should), and most people seem to be very excited about the update. I know It had been a while since last time Microsoft updated MSN Space. I am certain that a team of people [in Redmond, WA] had been working hard debugging MSN Space in this long period. However, I am not so thrilled about those new features and so have a mixed feeling about this update.
What I Like: Many more themes are newly added and available; now MSN Space has better compatibility on Firefox browser than so that Firefox can display my space correctly with fewer errors; it allows users to use their own profiles information to comment; MSN Space is also better incorporated with MSN Messenger now; sponsors can be added to one’s space.
What I dislike: Already slow MSN Space becomes slower than ever; Internet Explorer (IE) often freezes or crashes randomly (~80%) without warning by clicking links to any other MSN Spaces; I receive many error messages commenting other blogs, and using my profile information will result in certain death – IE will sure freeze (Use Firefox will not encounter a such problem); a squared image is recommended as person image; users are still unable to use their own background images.
Room for Improvement: Spelling check is made available; solve the slow down problem when commenting using Internet Explorer; give room for more freedom — some may like blogs with many features, and others may want simple ones, which means enable users to customize their spaces in term of simpler blogs or feature-richer blogs; fix the crashing or freezing problem of Internet Explorer and other minor bugs/errors.
