Yahoo Gives A Sneak-Peek At Its New Home Page

Yahoo continues to develop a new home page, and today has shared a sneak-peek at the latest design that’s being tested internally.


The “My Favorites” column on the left side of the page seems to be where the big changes are happening. Yahoo currently lists more than a dozen of its own properties in this space, but the new home page will feature a dashboard of sorts that users can customize with many of their favorites sites — including non-Yahoo sites like eBay or the Wall Street Journal. Users can also keep track of their friends social activities via a new Yahoo Updates app. And if you have multiple webmail accounts — say, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, and Gmail — you’ll be able to access them individually from the home page. It’s not unlike Yahoo’s new mobile home page, which offers similar types of content customization.

Yahoo says the new home page design is still a work-in-progress and is being updated frequently based on user feedback. No word on when a final version will be ready, but today’s announcement suggests there will be more updates “in the months ahead.”
