SkyDrive website set to go Metro
Published by David Gilson at
Microsoft treated The Verge to a preview of the next incarnation of its SkyDrive website - reportedly to debut this summer. The new site is going to be heavily influenced by the Metro tile style. This news breaks amid the official release of Outlook.com which transforms the Windows Live Mail experience into a much more Metro styled interface, reflecting the new look sported by the Office 2013 suite. The Verge also reports that the aesthetic update is accompanied by functional updates. For example SkyDrive will display thumbnails of Office files - displaying their content. Also, users will be able to select multiple files and folders to act on (e.g. move, delete, etc.).
