More Windows Live stuff that doesn’t work on a mac

leave a comment »

UPDATE: Turns out it does work on a mac. You just have to install Firefox and use that instead of Safari.

Add Live Maps to the list of Windows Live properties that doesn’t run in Safari on a mac. Try going to http://maps.live.com from a mac and you get redirected to http://intl.local.live.com/. Very disappointing.

 

On the positive side, its introduced me to a Windows Live property that I didn’t know about before. Here’s a screenshot of http://intl.local.live.com/ in all its minimalist glory:

There’s not much to it but I like the way that the results are presented. Here’s a search for restaurants in my area:

Note that the map is from MapPoint, not Virtual earth.
