Following the rumors that Yahoo is planning to launch a redesigned home page last week, AllThingsD is reporting that the Internet giant is working on a new Yahoo Mail. Insider sources told the publication that the new Yahoo Mail is cleaner and more Gmail-like, and that the end goal of the overhaul is to better compete with the most popular email service right now. The details of the rumor are scarce, but the sources added that Yahoo is launching the new Yahoo Mail in early December this year.
As for Yahoo’s rumored Windows 8-like home page, we previously said that the company is planning to launch the project within the next two months. Yahoo, now under the leadership of former Google exec Marissa Mayer, has been making some critical money-making decisions lately. In October this year, Yahoo acquired Stamped, a mobile recommendations app. “Marissa thinks Yahoo Mail has been a big missed opportunity for the company and she wants to fix that,” sources told AllthingsD.
