would like to know!
Get to know all the features of the upgrade. A survey regarding your first
impressions will be release near the end of the week.
Browser Version Update
Imagine less site restrictions due to an older browser
version! The latest upgrade advertises a more enhance browser which
results in less site rejections. You should now see much
less web sites asking you to upgrade your browser to IE 4 or
The browser version is an important feature to test first. Before
we can test other new features, we need to ensure that the correct
browser version is advertised. We test it by surfing.
Remember those web sites that wouldn't let you
in? Go try it now to see if you can get in. If you
can, success! Otherwise, it might be a bug.
Here are some web sites that denied users before the upgrade. Please go to all
of these site to make sure they work:
If you encounter any problems with these web sites, please post to the
newsgroup to let everybody know that it's been reported. If you find a
site that won't let you in due to our browser version, please let us know
through the Problem Report form.
MSN Messenger and Web PIP
Finally! You can now watch TV and chat with your Messenger Buddy at the
same time! Before the upgrade, MSN Messenger covered the Web PIP used to
watch TV in web world. There are two new function that make it possible
to do both:
- Web PIP can be moved to all four corners of Web World
- MSN Messenger can be resized to make room for Web PIP
You may be wondering how use the new functions. Well, figuring it
out on your own is part of the test. Is it user friendly? Let us know! If
you're having trouble figuring it out, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll help you out.
In addition to using the new function in Web PIP and MSN Messenger,
please use all other functions to make sure they work. Test all normal functions
and try using the feature differently. The idea is to do both normal and unusual
things in order to break it and find bugs.
Please report any issues through the Problem Report Form. If there are any
questions or comments, don't hesitate to post in the newsgroup.
Quick List of MSN Messenger Functions:
- Add/delete addresses

There's a change in our printing feature. I don't want to
tell what it is because we would like to know how customers are
going to respond upon discovering the change. Please test all
functions of the print feature, including the various print settings.
If you should experience any problems, file a Problem Report.
Later in the week, we're requesting feedback about printing through
the survey. Please keep a record of your thoughts, feeling and
experiences until we release our survey later in the week.
If you need any help or have questions, please post to the
newsgroup or contact me at
