Not working in FireFox or IE7 for one reason or another. It was working on IE6 before I upgraded...shame to lose it - I like the new design.

This was first reported back in late February...

I noticed that on my Windows 2000 machine I get the old look, while I've been seeing the new look on my XP machine since early March. I'm not big on clearing cookies, so perhaps it's not related to the O/S.

And I'm still not able to see it. :\ From what I saw from the link posted however, it looks great and I can't wait for the change.

I wasn't getting it with Firefox or IE7 so I went back to IE6 and I'm still not seeing it.

After looking at the image posted above, I don't think it was worth my trouble anyhow. I don't need more icons and images and cartoon advertisements in my life.

Seems to me, in trying to differentiate themselves from Google, Yahoo has left behind the "pare it down" movement. Event their results pages are kind of hairy.

I wish Yahoo was more like news.yahoo.com.

Bye-bye Yahoo! Directory, you're getting burried deeper and deeper with every redesign.

I've been getting this since some time last month. I rarely see the old version anymore.

It has started appearing for me two weeks ago but only after i was clicking sign out and then was auto forwarding to Yahoo homepage
It looks like a mix of MSN and something else but i like it,it looks simple and clean

I had it until I cleared my cookies and now I'm back to the same old Yahoo page. At first it annoyed me, but then I got used to it and actually liked it better. One of the nice features was the mouseover function on the icons, which allowed preview of new mail without actually going into yahoo mail, weather report, among other new features.
