Yahoo today launched what some are calling a significant overhaul to its home page. Yahoo says the new home page is designed to help you stay on top of what is going on in your world, and on the rest of the planet.

To be honest, design-wise it is better. The style of the design is more accessible.
I like the improvements, its a lot more interactive, with better coloring, and
all sorts of widgets.

Design? What design? Still looks like the back end of a bus to me...
I feel sorry for Yahoo!, they are always the bridesmaid and keep getting shiny new looks only to end up closing services rather than opening anything really exciting a new these days. I almost wish they could manage to pull off another decent purchase like they did with Flickr, because they could use the backbone
Content wise, I wouldn't say there is much. It's jut links isn't it? And when I say links I mean links that just have a name or word. Nothing is expanded at all. Give me information quickly, just like MSN does.
Overall, I'd say a 7 / 10. I also didn't like the popup at the top saying how it was my new homepage :O I freaked out and had to double-check that it wasn't my actual new homepage. That would have lost them points dramatically if it did make it my homepage on visiting the Website. Maybe they should have worded it differently.
The yahoo homepage design is very good for people who just want to see a lots of pictures and ads, while google if for those who really know about fast loading.. simple.. google loads faster that yahoo because theirs no image on it, images affects the loading of a webpage.
Yes the change is always better as sometimes we bored by watching the same and same layout and new one is good but its very old news too.
Look pretty cool . But who uses Yahoo 0.0 ?
I use Yahoo answers sometimes , thats about it . What do you use yahoo for .
Ok I even use Flickr which is owned by yahoo .
The AJAX on the image / web / video / etc search selection however I really like, think Google could take a lesson from Yahoo in this part of the site.
Some nice elements overall but still too much going on for me - I just want a search site.
