Marketplacebrowser.com closes doors

Prior to Microsoft launching it's Marketplace web browser, most of us relied on third party websites to browse through all the Windows Phone apps. One of the first (if not the first) such site was Marketplacebrowser.com. It was a great resource and we have just learned that the site was shut down as of February 6, 2012.

Paul Willen, the sites creator, has posted a brief message on the site explaining that since Microsoft has launched their own Marketplace website, the task for Marketplacebrowser.com has been fullfilled.  All is not lost though.  Willen will now focus his efforts to a new website focused on the Windows Phone Community, WP7.nl.

We'd like to wish Paul the best in continuing his efforts to support and promote Windows Phones in the Netherlands and on the web.

Thanks, hd7guy, for the tip!
