    I'm not an anti-Microsoft person by any means. In fact, I have maintained my allegiance to MS products for years even as my wife has jumped the fence onto Apple products. MSN.com has been my homepage since as far as I can remember, at least 5 years. But today I changed it.

    What has me really annoyed is the automatic locking of the cursor to the search field. It locks more than once too! If I open my browser and begin typing in the search field, the lock invariably happens in the middle of my typing (when MSN.com fully loads) and half my term is suddenly in the search field.

    More so, when I am reading an article on MSN, or MSNBC, or any article in their tree, the page will autoscroll upwards to the search field when the page fully loads. It's annoying the first time, but it's even more annoying when it ALWAYS happens again when I scroll down. Does the page load it's command to lock to the search field twice?

    I've sent several comments to the MSN webdevelopers, but I can't bear to wait any longer. I've moved on. I was almost sad when I had to choose a replacement, which is yahoo.com for now, but I see no reason why MSN's insistence to shove their search down my throat should annoy me several times daily.
