With the original MSN Explorer, a user was unable to change their homepage from the browser's default site, Microsoft has since rectified the issue by offering MSN users a free upgrade to a special version of Internet Explorer 8 which has been optimized for MSN users. The browser initially sets the default homepage as, but users are able to permanently change their homepage to any other non-malicious site on the web.
