Honestly, we couldn’t make this up if we tried.
According to The Register, many of the 350 million users of the service are having some nagging issues including disappearing messages and scripting errors on the page. Many are even experiencing a deeper issue of not being able to log in to their Hotmail account at all.
In all fairness, Hotmail seems to work fine via Internet Explorer, but anyone using Safari 3 or Firefox 2 might have some serious problems. While Microsoft continues to “look into” the problem, the Google Chrome suggestion strikes a humorous note: “some customers have indicated that if they use Google Chrome to view their Hotmail account they no longer encounter this problem”.
Are you a Hotmail user? Leave us a comment and let us know if you’re having the same issues.
