Up until now, e-mail giant Microsoft Outlook has only been available on the Microsoft Office Suite. Well as of yesterday, in an attempt to compete with GMail and Yahoo!, Microsoft launched a new website to make Outlook available to the public.
Outlook.com officially went live yesterday. The website allows people to use for their personal e-mail and access it from any computer with internet connection.
Outlook.com allows users to integrate social networking into their e-mail, allowing them to populate their address books with friends from Facebook, twitter, and LinkedIn.
The website has also implemented a live-feed of your social media news feeds in a side bar, a first for any e-mail site.
In addition, Microsoft made the mighty big decision to sunset it's hotmail brand and upgrade users to the new outlook service.
