Yahoo Previews New Homepage Design


Yahoo is previewing their new homepage layout and has a video from founders David Filo and Jerry Yang explaining the change. As with all other recently launched sites, Yahoo has moved to the wider 1024 width, up from 800. It's a pain resizing the broswer window all the time so the sooner everyone (including uss) moves to 1028, the better. The new Yahoo have navigation button along the left side and Yahoo services such as Mail, Messenger, Music, Movies and Weather to the top right. It's not bad looking but one does wish for the good old days when yahoo was the search and directory giant with a no-fuss inteerface like Google currently has. Oh well, Yahoo went content and Google is sticking with search.

It's 1024 instead of 1028...

I think it looks great. way cleaner and without that old school look that worked well in the past but was straight-up dated.

the ajax action keeps it fast too!

Unfortunately, the new Yahoo isn't compatible with Firefox. Looks like IE users are going to be the only ones who can experience the new changes.

Works just fine for us and we're on Firefox.
