Yahoo! Inc. is showing off a new look today, with a redesigned home page and refinements on the shopping and e-mail sections as well.
The new home page includes a “personal assistant” that informs registered users of new e-mails, and lists selected products available at Yahoo Shopping. The shopping page now makes featured brands more prominent, changes how products are grouped and informs users of the five most popular items in certain categories.
With new colors, a cleaner appearance and drop-down menus, the e-mail page is getting its first significant makeover since it debuted in 1997. Yahoo hopes the redesign makes the free service easier to use.
Yahoo claims to have more than 237-million registered users around the world. Many users won´t see the redesigned pages for several weeks.
