While Google might be more or less the default search engine for many, Yahoo is certainly trying to bring the spotlight back onto itself and has rolled out a redesigned homepage. This is part of Yahoo’s attempt to revive itself and regain some of its former glory that it used to have a little over a decade ago. This redesigned homepage was announced in a blog post where the page has been described as being more intuitive and personal. It seems that this redesign has been undergoing testing with select users since the start of this year, but Yahoo expects to roll out this revamped homepage in the US over the next few days.
“[…] we’re introducing a newsfeed with infinite scroll, letting you experience a virtually endless feed of news articles. Whether you are a sports fanatic or entertainment buff, you can easily customize your newsfeed to your interests. And, to make Yahoo! even more social, you can log in with your Yahoo! or Facebook ID to get articles from thousands of news sources as well as those shared by your friends.”
Yahoo has also stated that this revamped homepage will not be limited to just desktop computers, but the mobile version of its website has also been redesigned and optimized for both smartphones and tablets as well, claiming to have made some under-the-hood improvements which should result in a faster experience. This is just one of the many changes that Yahoo will be making and they revealed that more changes and improvements will be made over the next few months.
