New Yahoo Front Page

Evan's Blog mentioned the new redesign of Yahoo, and I think it somewhat resembles AOL’s design. It’s got the same “Tabbed Top Stories” front center and “Personalized Services” on the right side AOL used for a long time. The main difference is Yahoo’s new page’s directories are on the left, while AOL’s is on the bottom.

Update: Yahoo just reverted to its old front page (5/21/06). I guess it was only a test for a few days, seeing if users like it.

Update: Yahoo is using the new front page (5/25). When will Yahoo make up their minds?

Hi Paul. Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog Blogger for Dummies. Looking forward to your visits again. Just to let you know Blogger for Dummies may not be updated but all new posts for the time being will go to Blogger Tips and Tricks while I ponder what to do. This is because of trademark issues.

^ Good grief. :P

Btw, I took a look at the "new" Yahoo - looks like any other search site to me. I kind of prefer the old one a bit better. It looks more colourful and "friendlier". Although the 1 million text links located on the page are darn confusing. XP

Yahoo just switched back, guess you missed it. :)

What search engines do you use there? Is it Google Singapore at http://www.google.com.sg/ ?

Yup, it redirects to google.com.sg.
