I really like what they've done with this new design, it's a lot more cohesive and the use of AJAX is definitely a plus. There also seems to have been a shuffle in their search results (as mentioned in another post).
Yahoo Inc.'s Web site is unveiling a new look today as the Internet powerhouse strives to remain the world's most popular online destination and strengthen its advertising appeal.

The new [search.yahoo.com...] looks so much like Google's home page...
I'm seeing the same search as before: A search box with some news beneath it.
The new Yahoo page wasn't live earlier today for me, but it's live right now. Looks great. Yahoo has a good touch with graphic design elements and layout.
I like the big links to radio, weather, local, and movies. That button for the Yahoo Local looks fairly useful. Well done.
One thing that seems like wasted space is the link for the YIM download, even though I already have the latest version AND I'm logged in to MyYahoo.

...no mention of the Yahoo Directory on the homepage...
It's on the search bar, a logical place for it. Probably a reflection that web surfer's habits may have changed to searching in a box instead of drilling down through links. What would you rather do? I never liked drilling down through links.
Till recently I was thinking of not changing my sites layout till Yahoo changes its layout and abandons 800x600.
Wow.. I like the new layout.. except
Left Menu and other buttons.. only the text is the link and not the whole button. Should be very easy to do it using css, but no.. they made it not so friendly. (hopefully will change it)
P.S.. I noticed that they do have a option to switch to 800x600 layout and to change layout colors.. that is pretty nifty.
Sadly, there is no mention of the Yahoo Directory on the homepage...
There's a "mention", but no directory categories on the front page.
The lack of directory categories on the new Yahoo homepage is like a huge kick in the teeth for businesses paying Yahoo for directory listings.
