Internet Start served as the default home page for Internet Explorer and offered basic information such as news, weather, sports, stocks, entertainment reports, links to other websites on the Internet, articles by Microsoft staff members, and software updates for Windows.
Microsoft's original news website, (now NBCNews.com), which launched in 1996, was also tied closely to the Internet Start portal.
Microsoft has just updated the suite of Bing apps on Windows Phone.
The update drops the Bing branding and replaces it with MSN.From 1995 to 1998, the domain was used by Microsoft primarily to promote MSN as an online service and Internet service provider.At the time, also offered a custom start page and an Internet tutorial, but Microsoft's major web portal was known as 'Microsoft Internet Start,' located at home.In addition to its original MSN Dial-up service, Microsoft has used the 'MSN' brand name for a wide variety of products and services over the years, notably Hotmail (which is now Outlook.com), Messenger (which was once synonymous with 'MSN' in Internet slang and has now been replaced by Skype), and its web search engine (which is now Bing), as well as several other rebranded and discontinued services.The current website and suite of apps offered by MSN was first introduced by Microsoft in 2014 as part of a complete redesign and relaunch.This coincided with their overhauled MSN portal that came out a few weeks ago.
