A New Microsoft.com

by Volker Weber

This week Microsoft began rolling out its new responsive homepage—one that Paravel helped design & build.

Open microsoft.com and scale the browser window. Impressive.

Yes, looks good. I'm wondering if they will get it to work with IE7 and IE8 as well.

Well - that's one single responsive page and not more. Follow any link to get back to unresponsive design as usual. That does not impress me.

Somehow I am not very amazed. Click on "Downloads" or "Security" and it turns just ugly. I wonder if IE will handle the resizing, but I won't hold my breath.

I think it is impressive. Having it scale back to the old design in deeper areas actually is an andvantage. It is giving you both - new brand refreshening visibility plus known paths deeper down.

See, arguing the i-way is fun :)

I prefer responsive users ;-)

At least on the iPhone I don't like it since you can't zoom out or display the page in classic (non-mobile) mode - unless I missed something. I personally do not like mobilized web pages that are then half a mile long with just links. Feels more like web 0.9 then where people had zillions of links - just without the ugly animated gifs ^^

I like the site. I am impressed too. The globe icon at the very bottom-left is not loading in my Firefox. I ran it through the W3's Validator; it found 517 errors.
Web development is a small part of my workload lately. Am I a dinosaur for running my pages through the markup validator? Does markup conformance matter in this brave, new, html5 world?

We have done much nicer stuff - will launch soon :-)

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
