Yahoo has a new look
It seems they changed look

I do not use Yahoo a lot, but today I noted that the look seems different.

Serp seems the same.

Just saw the new look also. Looks nice!

I have to agree; it looks very nice with prominent link buttons. Well designed and better than the previous ones. It is currently the test page.

Looks nice. Seems cleaner, yet it appears to have more info there.

I don't see anything different. Any snapshots?

It seems to be a test and not everyone is seeing it.

I can't post a link to a screen shot so I'll describe it.

New yahoo test looks like its more compact, you don't have to scroll. Yahoo logo is no longer red but white on dark blue background.

You can find the snapshot of Yahoo new design here:

I took a look back through archive.org and this the first time since at least 1996, and probably since they started in 1994, that Yahoo's home page does not have the Yahoo logo centered at the top of the page and two or three clickable images to either side of the logo. After more than 10 years with the same basic header design I find this layout to be a major change and one that will go down as an historic break from what the web looked like when it was young. Certainly another sign that the web is maturing. Is Google next?

After my last post I just checked and I'm getting the new design in IE but the old design is still appearing in Firefox.

My version looked a bit different... and others in my office aren't seeing it. I get it both logged in and not logged in. Looks pretty cool.

I was looking at something on Yahoo yesterday. The page looked pretty standard to me (what I remembered). I hit the back button and all of a sudden the page looked different (much nicer). I tried hitting the refresh but it stayed that way.

I dont see it now, but it is much cleaner, less busy. I liked it.

Here is a link to the news:

In my opinion, the two screenshots look like hybrids of AOL and MSN...

As I posted earlier, I view Yahoo's new look as a milestone moment in web history, primarily due to how they have moved away from the image map header. But it is also worth noting that Yahoo now appears to accept 1024 as the new standard for screen resolution (actually they appear to be at 950). For my site, I've always viewed Yahoo as a bellwether site for signaling when a mainstream site should consider changing its dimensions. I believe the time has come to make that adjustment.
