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 😛
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 😀 ( 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 😛 )
