Microsoft is continuing to court Mac users, revealing plans today to make its MSN services available on Apple computers.
The software giant plans to offer internet access and content to Mac users by early next year.
The service will be based around a browser, MSN for MacOS X, with similar functionality to MSN for Windows. It will allow users to manage their email, access forums, handle digital photographs, and browse the internet.
The MSN browser is likely to be available only with MSN's internet access service or as a separate subscription. Details of pricing are currently unavailable, but are expected to be in line with the PC version.
Earlier this month, rival AOL released the latest version of its internet access software for Mac - AOL for Mac OS X - which includes a message counter and support for email.
