Yahoo Inc. is expected to launch its new homepage Tuesday, months earlier than expected, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal. The new page permits users to customize the site with links to other Internet services such as Google’s Gmail and Twitter.
Yahoo Inc.’s overhaul of its flagship Web site, originally scheduled for this fall, is likely to be unveiled Tuesday, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.
Written by Jessica E. Vascellaro, the story says the biggest change in the new design is a left-hand menu that users can customize with links to dozens of potential third-party services, including Twitter and Google’s Gmail.
Yahoo will populate the menu with some applications and recommend others users may want to add based on their browsing behavior, the story says. News and headlines will still run down the middle of the site, which has a slightly clearner look than the current homepage.
