Mobile Hotmail

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

I don’t know for you but I really dislike using Hotmail. It looks broken, works as it looks, runs slowly and is full of advertisements that add to the burden.

Just a minute ago, I was testing some website using a User Agent switcher with Firefox (to simulate a mobile phone) and I happened to open the Hotmail page.

To my great surprise, the interface was minimalistic. Only the main options were made available. It happened because Hotmail detected that I was probably using a mobile phone and decided on its own to minimise the content for my supposedly smaller screen view.

Best of all, you can access it from this http://mobile.live.com/hm/ even with your regular browser. With this one, no more unnecessary ad images to tell you to purchase a Master’s Degree online or whatever!

I will stick to this one now :)
