New Yahoo HomePage

Yahoo has officially launched its new homepage. It’s all sleek, ajax-y, and looks pretty good.

From the press release:

“The new Yahoo! home page design was first previewed at yahoo.com on May 16, 2006, and new localized versions are now available in Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, UK & Ireland, and Vietnam. Yahoo! plans to roll out additional localized versions, and to display the new page to all visitors of Yahoo.com in the coming weeks.

The new Yahoo! home page includes enhancements that allow consumers to turn to the Web daily to read news, search for information, stay in touch with their community and discover what’s happening around the globe. It combines frequently updated news and entertainment with useful tools for searching, connecting, sharing and communicating online – all on one simple, easy-to-use Web page”.

Meanwhile. Yahoo! shares drop as they issue a 2006 revenue outlook below Wall Street forecasts. Shares were down 13 percent. Also, Yahoo! will delay introducing the upgrade to its dusty overture-based ad system until the fourth quarter, a quarter later than it had previously expected.

    Hey Peter. The new homepage is indeed slick. I like the left side “cloud” like navigational menu (with more interesting ares, slightly bolded).

    Hi Expertu. Yes, I like it, too. I think Yahoo have quietly been doing some good things, and their search is getting better. I find I’m using it a lot more than I used to – it appears to be fresher.

    I liked the cool effects. The left menu looks good. Yahoo.com had Google PageRank of 10 , but I see its 9 , Is it because Yahoo changed its template?
