Yahoo seems to be tweaking its home page a lot, recently it launched a new home page which is only visible to a handful of users and most of the users didn’t like that change. Now Yahoo came up with a new design for itâ€
Yahoo says the new home page is basically a tweaked version of the previously launched design based on user feedback.
The left side â€œMy Favoritesâ€ section which usually contains links to Yahoo sites is now customizable, users can add their favorite web pages to this section apart from Yahoo sites.
- Lots more apps: Weâ€
re testing a growing library of apps that let you get more done without leaving the page. Some of these apps include eBay and MySpace, and content sites like USA Today and NPR. We also have newly developed apps for popular Yahoo! services like Messenger, Movies and Flickr.
- Social pulse: A new Yahoo! Updates app lets you keep up with your friendsâ€
online activities directly on the homepage â€“ such as a recently Buzzed article or a video uploaded to YouTube.
- Easier email: Weâ€
ve separated your individual email accounts as distinct apps, rather than a combined inbox, so that itâ€ s faster and easier to get to the exact mail you want. This was a request we heard repeatedly during testing.
Other than these changes Yahoo home pages will carry apps localized based on the location, for example Indian users will see Cricket scores on the home page and UK users will see Underground alerts and news BBC, Yahoo blog post reads.
There is no word on when this new home pages will be broadly available, may be it will be months before everyone will see this new home page. These new home page is being tested currently in France, India and UK.
