Yahoo creates a new hompage

old design

new design

Yahoo have redesigned their homepage. For a sneak peak, go to and click on the top bar. The new design features a more modern streamlined look. The fonts are better spaced and easier to read. The logo has lost the tacky shadow it used to have, and the site is now more open to third party applications and offers a lot in terms of customization. You can actually now log on to Gmail or AOL from Yahoo.

Although I love Google's mimimal strictly search homepage, Yahoo has always been more of a portal. This new design will no doubt send ripples through the internet community with approximately 90 million people logging onto Yahoo a day.

It's funny really how people are resistent to re-designs. I remember when facebook last changed its appearance and how pissed I was about it. To the procrastinating part of me that doesn't want to learn anything new; SHUT DOWN!!
