MSN Explorer 6.1 is coming soon

According to ActiveWin, Microsoft will release MSN Explorer 6.1 in a few weeks. This morning ActiveWin even had a link to the beta version on the page, but Microsoft reacted quickly and prompted ActiveWin to remove the (still working) link very quickly.

New features in MSN Explorer 6.1 will include:

  • Integrated media player
  • The e-mail client can now display 50 mails per page.
  • The e-mail client has extended editing functions . Including a spell check if you have installed Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, Microsoft Office or Works.
  • You can now use MSN Internet access and still use your Hotmail e-mail account.
  • Local news, weather and city news can now be displayed in a pop-up window.
  • The My-Stuff-Bar can now be hidden.
  • The MSN Explorer can now use Greet your first name instead of just your MSN/Hotmail/Passport username.
