    About time. Now give us the ability to force-close all open instances and I can finally say no to Google completely. Oh and make it so that we can comment on sites using the MS account.

      What do you mean by force-close all open instances?
      Also, you can already comment on sites using MS account. People who set up Windows Live ID login to comment on sites (for example WPCentral and LiveSide), still work with Microsoft accounts.

        if I forget to log out my Hotmail account logged at home or on someones computer I borrowed for example, id like to be able to force it to log out from my phone or from another computer. Gmail lets me do that and it’s extremely helpful.

        About commenting. Yes I am aware of those sites(I use my account on WPC) but they should make it easier for devs to integrate the way google, facebook and twitter have.
