Back in the day when the internet was still in its early stages, there were plenty of free email services around, but eventually users quickly settled on a handful, some of which remains popular and in use even until today. One of those services is Yahoo Mail, which unfortunately in recent times has gotten a bad rep no thanks to various security breaches.

However it seems that following Verizon’s acquisition of the company and the shakeup in terms of management, Yahoo wants people to start trusting them again and using their services, so much so that they have given Yahoo Mail a brand new UI as well as introducing a new “Pro” version of the email service that essentially replaces the previous Ad Free version with a cheaper price tag.

As you can see in the video above, the new Yahoo Mail features a much cleaner and simpler look compared to before. We have yet to try it out ourselves but early reports are claiming that it is faster compared to its previous design. TechCrunch claims that this is because of a rebuilt front-end tech stack that reduces its JavaScript and CSS footprint by as much as 50%. Security has also been improved, which is probably what most users are interested to know.

Like we said there is also the introduction of the Pro version which is priced at $34.99 a year and removes ads in the email service. There is also a mobile-only option which is priced at $9.99 a year. These new changes are now live but if for whatever reason you prefer the old look, not to worry as there is the option of switching back.
