The New Hotmail

Since the release of Gmail, Hotmail has felt dated and sluggish; with this new update we can say this no more. I won't go into the fine details of the update, but here are the best new features:

  1. Sweep: This allows you to delete all messages from 1 sender and to continue doing this in the future.
  2. 10 GB Attachments: Wowzers!! These are tied into your Skydrive account and for any photos, they appear as a slideshow within the account. 
  3. Content Within Emails: YouTube links appear as videos that can be played within the email and flickr links as slideshows.
  4. Tracking Numbers: Hotmail will automatically recognize a tracking ID and give you all of the information within the email.
  5. Office Integration: Simply put, it does an awesome job at working with Microsoft Office documents. 
The new update also makes Hotmail feel snappier. For a comparison of Gmail with Hotmail, head on over to Lifehacker
