Thread Description:

SEW are reporting that Yahoo Search has had some subtle changes to the default page.

+ Three news headlines (and a direct link to Yahoo News)
+ A direct link to Yahoo Finance along with Dow Jones and NASDAQ Averages
+ Yahoo Mail users can login and have direct links to their inbox (along with the number of new messages). A direct link to compose mail is also visible.

I like it and think the clean uncluttered additions are sensible. All these small changes add up to a large change and this might be the change that makes me jump ship for my default searches.

Do you like it or prefer the old page?

If you didn't like the old one, blame Google - it was so much a carbon copy that it was verging on hero worship. The new one hasn't filtered down to ca.search.yahoo.com yet, but I agree it a huge improvement. With the integrated Yahoo Mail it makes for a very nice minimalist home page which could well tempt people away from Google.

This is interesting too (unless I completely missed it and it's old news):

It looks good. Yahoo news is particularly strong and it is good they are playing to that.
