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 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 :)
