Yahoo! redesigns its homepage

Allows users to create their own apps

By CBR Staff Writer

Yahoo! has unveiled a redesigned homepage, which allows users to add apps from its website or any other site on the web and access them from their PCs or mobile devices.

Yahoo! said that its new homepage brings together the tools and content from across the web, combined with content and services from Yahoo! Properties, to give users one place to access their required things.

Reportedly, the users can also choose from a dashboard of more than 65 apps to add directly to their homepage, including different email providers, content sites and social networking sites such as Facebook and Myspace. It also allows users to create their own app on the fly by virtually any URL of their choice.

The company said that this launch is a major milestone in the Yahoo! Open Strategy, which seeks to mesh the Yahoo! experience with the best online content and services. It also hailed the new design as the most significant change to the Yahoo!’s homepage since the company’s inception.

Ari Balogh, executive vice president of products and chief technology officer, said: People are living more of their lives online – in the US, the average person visits a staggering 85 sites a month. By focusing on what people have told us they want, our new homepage is designed to help them stay on top of what is going on in their world, and in the rest of the world.

The new Yahoo! homepage is now available in the US and is expected to be rolled out in France, India, the UK and also on mobile devices over the coming week.
