MSN Mail Beta Preview

Recommended Posts

MSN describes Kahuna as an incubation project that has been built from the ground up utilizing the latest Web technologies, such as AJAX, a Web application architecture that combines HTML/Dynamic HTML (DHTML) with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), XML, and other technologies. These technologies are used to emulate the type of experience users get with traditional Windows-based email applications, such as Outlook and Outlook Express, but in a browser-based Web environment. Too, MSN has collected the experiences Microsoft has had creating various email solutions, such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Exchange Server, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) to ensure that Kahuna is as elegant and powerful as possible.

"Kahuna is the rebirth of Web mail," Doerr told me. "It's enabled by a recent tipping point in the use of more modern browsers that support DHTML and XML. A lot of users need to be at Internet Explorer (IE) 5.5 or above or equivalent to take advantage of these features. In the last year or so, that's happened. So we're going to start deploying these technologies."

Looking very good, we desperatly need msn sorting out.
