After Google launched Google Base this month, it comes as no shock that Microsoft announced it’s testing its own version of Google Base.
The Microsoft online marketplace, code-named Fremont, is a free service which lets people contribute listings similar to Craiglist. It’s a general purpose marketplace whether people are looking for roommates, jobs, or new/used items for sale.
Although you can get a glimpse of Fremont at fremont.live.com, it’s currently only open to Microsoft employees. The first public test will start later this month.
