Microsoft is adding birthday reminders and several other new features to its Windows Live Calendar service.

The online calendar, which still is in beta testing, also got a new user interface and some more options for printing, Microsoft said in a statement Wednesday. On tap in coming days are the ability to subscribe to online iCal-format calendars, support for holidays, and the ability to synchronize with Windows Live Hotmail e-mail.

Some things on Live need updating though. The contacts section of the calendar page told me to upgrade my Web browser to Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari; I'm using Firefox 3.0.
