Yahoo home page gets a new look

Ian Paul | July 22, 2009
The most significant change is in Yahoo's right-hand column, which has been renamed My Favorites.

Personalized News

The news tabs have moved down a bit, but now have a local news section. Just type in a U.S. City or Zip and Yahoo delivers news from local news outlets.

PC To Mobile Sync

This feature isn't available yet, but Yahoo says that soon your Yahoo mobile page will match the edits you've made on the desktop version.

If you want to try out the new features you have to opt-in when you arrive at Yahoo's home page; alternatively, you can go to Yahoo.com/trynew. Today's launch is only available to users in the United States, and availability will expand over the coming week to users in France, India, and the UK. Mobile device users will also see the new Yahoo home page this week, but the company didn't specify which countries would see the mobile version first. If you live in the rest of the world, Yahoo says it will be rolling out the new home page to more countries in the coming months.
