Is New Orkut Really New ?
Well few days Back I heard something called new orkut . It took weeks before since last time I logged in Orkut . Facebook attracted me more and some how addicted to it .Now heard about** “New Orkut “** I came back to my old orkut :) .
Goodness I got invite from some one ( sad thing is New Orkut too is a** Invite and use system** ). Well when I saw try new orkut at top , Clicked it really expecting a amazing wonder as an Alice . But I seen a page something very similar to face-book which disappointed me a lot .
What they say new in this version are …
i) They say ‘** Friends updates are available to every one** ‘ .. Do you guess this thing new as an FB user :P
ii) second ‘Every one can comment on any friends notification , updates ,application and friend acceptance ‘ .
iii) A new thing I found interesting is** Video chatting integrated** with orkut ( pity on Linux users , it says ‘ OS not supported ‘)
iv) Best feature I found in this release is IE 6 is not at all supported :) .
v) Next humorous thing I found is adding a general sucky template and five sticky colors of their own choice and they said “ **Pick your favorite colors We’ve made orkut even more colorful **“ ..
vi) Speed is the main thing they mentioned they have increased .. But instead of static pages I can see my page still buffering in status bar ( stealing my pity small free download limit I have :( )
vii) And the highlight of all is they mentioned moving chat bar from left side to right side as a new feature :D ( I guess the only thing they didnt imitate is the notification bar you can see under as In face Book )
I guess it may take time to digest this things and to switch over to new orkut . The thing I like the most is the prefix Beta in Orkut ( a word which can answer almost all the bugs user raises :P )
