Microsoft Microsoft launched a preview of Outlook.com - a Metro web email client that will eventually replace Hotmail. Looks pretty good (but then, that's Metro for you). Ironically, it seems to work better, and is more smooth, than the mail client in Windows 8. Would be awesome - although obviously unlikely - if Microsoft allowed you to add accounts to Outlook.com (instead of being tied to your Microsoft account). I'd love to use this for my personal email account. Update: I'm being an idiot - you can actually do this! Nice.

Some people don't like to install software locally.
Some people are not allowed to install software locally.
And some people are using a computer that is not their own (internetcafe while travelling).

In all those scenario's a good webmail is a great alternative.
