I have begun playing with numerous things and the one that intrigues me the most is the new MSN software from MS. Unlike previous versions you can keep your isp and still use the service.

I believe that this is where Netscape 6 should be headed, at least for newbies. AOL/NS are you listening? The program is simply a skin that does what the previous button scheme NS has done in the past right. If any of my friends were logged into MS Messenger i could simply drop down the icon and send a message, checking my mail is a simple click since i logged on when i first started the app. And the sincher is that i can watch movies in the sidebar, only media player ones, but movies none the lesss. Its aimed at newbies but i like it too!

With that said and done i am convinced that we could do something similar, with equal power and expressiveness.
