The Usability Juggernaut MSN Messenger

So I was about to write my first blog on MSN messenger and its icon-mismash-usability-nightmare-interface, when I decided to check if  a new version was available before I hit “post”.

my current version

Turns out there is…

I successfully navigate past the default software add-on’s; all ten of them including something called ‘Family Safety’???

And then there it is – only 7 icons with no text … compared to my old craptastic version with 13ish.

New Version

Wow don’t hear that everyday.
