Hotmail is Now 10x Faster

Looks like Google isn't the only one improving their web mail (Gmail) service. Microsoft has now announced a faster Hotmail - and they don't mean it lightly: it's actually ten times faster!

Thanks to some clever techniques (caching, pre-loading, asynchronous operations, and the like) and using the latest features of HTML5/javascript, the Hotmail was able to shave off long annoying seconds. Things like opening, deleting or writing a new message - that used to take 3 to 4 seconds - can now be done in under 0.20s.

... That can sum up to quite a considerable amount of saved time if you happen to use hotmail intensively throughout the day.
