But it's a start - definitely a step up from what they've currently got once they polish it. It's got the right ideas, for sure.

Yeah, no good in Firefox

...but nice in some odd way in IE, though. I kinda like it - feels uncluttered although it has a lot of links to click on. I think the modest use of graphics (and light color scheme) is the reason for that. (Oh, and I bet they'll make it just as nice in FF sometime.)

spam

I like the unrelated text link ads "Find Now: Mortgages & Loans Credit Store" linked to www.msn.com w/o rel=nofollow - I won't buy links from that site.
