Starting today, MySpace is demoing a sleek, new look for its profiles. Besides a cleaner, more streamlined appearance, the made-over profiles will also feature a simplified left-hand navigation, more emphasis on the stream (MySpace's answer to Facebook's news feed) and the ability to follow MySpace friends on other social networks, including Twitter and Facebook. With this vastly improved user interface, MySpace is hoping to recover from the sharp decline the social network has experienced in recent years. The new look will be unveiled to a limited amount of users before an upcoming site-wide launch.

Google is currently testing the multiple sign-in feature on Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Reader, Google Sites, Google Code and Google Docs. However, it has been noted that Gmail's offline mode is disabled once you turn on multiple sign-in.
