For years, Microsoft has been trying to battle Gmail by refining and improving the Hotmail system, but those efforts havenít been successful for the OS Giant. As a result, Microsoft has decided to take its battle with Gmail in a new direction.
Recently, Microsoft has decided that Hotmail just isnít going to cut it anymore. Gmail recently overtook the long-reigning e-mail service in numbers of active users, according to a June article published by VentureBeat. While facelifts and retweaking the user experience have their marginal benefits, Microsoft intends to dump its e-mail mainstay and promulgate its new response to Googlesí mail darling: outlook.com.
