The new Live Search homepage includes background rotating images with “interactive hotspots” embedded in those images that direct users to vertical search results related to that image. Microsoft is rolling out the new home page in the U.S., with other markets to follow “in the future.
From a posting about the new home page on the Live Search team blog:
“Our goal for the home page is to find the best way to enhance users’ sense of discovery, surprise, and delight while balancing engineering realities for a great user experience.”
