New MSN homepage redesign in Safari 6.2

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 5, 2014

Those of you checking out the new MSN homepage redesign within Safari 6.2 might think it’s lacking in design quality, especially considering it looks like a mobile version of their page. The fact is, you wouldn’t be looking at the real new MSN homepage that Microsoft revamped recently.

If you do visit within an older version of Safari, then you will be greeted with a basic mobile looking page. There will also be a message highlighted in yellow, which we’ve featured a screenshot of below.


This basically explains you are using “an outdated browser”. The error message then tells visitors to upgrade to the “latest version for the best MSN experience”. If you haven’t updated to OS X Mavericks, then this would explain why you might be running an older version of Safari and these users should note that it’s free to upgrade your operating system to Mavericks.

The latest version of Safari is 8.0, although this software will come with OS X Yosemite 10.10. The software is in beta right now and should gain a public download later this month after Apple’s special October event.

Our developer has reported problems with Safari 8 and some crashing, although the latest preview runs a lot smoother.

Do you like the new MSN homepage redesign and if so, is everything working fine for you in your web browser? Let us know the web browser you are using and what version it is as well.

We also tried the new homepage within Firefox version 32, which has no problems at all displaying the correct design.

    I really don’t like the new format at all. I will be getting my online news from CNN from now on.

    I tried it on my laptop its RUBBISH, the photos are so large there is nothing else showing and the black ugly header takes up a quarter of the screen, you have to constantly scroll to find anything, its like trying to see through a submarine periscope, find a better website
