Some Microsoft News

MSN Toolbar with tabbed browsing is out. You can download it directly here. It does seem to be a good implementation of the popular method of browsing, so this is definitely good news for IE users. According to Nathan, the toolbar and the actual tags aren't stuck to each other, which is another plus point. You can drag the toolbar someplace else, even shrink it down as to make it seem to disappear, which is what I'll probably do if I ever need to use IE.

Windows Update is now, er, updated to make its scope broader. Now called Microsoft Update, it allows users to download updates of various Microsoft products, including Office, pre-release or beta products, etc. It's compatible with the Automatic Update system in Windows, so you don't even have to go there to use it.
