The latest version of home page from Microsoft is being tested by the company where the line up of services and products will be changed completely depending on your status, whether at home or work. Microsoft has planned a new custom-tailored site, though such idea is not revolutionary, the company has managed to make it more attractive & creative by adopting fresh ideas and utilizing the web-based variant of Microsoft’s Metro. The home page will have a feature of page slide where in the pages can be glided from side-to-side rather than moving the pages by scrolling downward or by reloading the pages. This feature can also be seen in the smartphone i.e. Windows Phone7, the surface computer which is recently refreshed along with other products of Microsoft such as Xbox 360, Zune, and Media Centre of Windows etc. the users are also provided with an option to shift between these two versions in the site and for this the users has to click a tab that is present on the right side at the top of the page. Bye clicking the same tab again, you can see that the version toggles back.
