Yahoo launches new interactive homepage

Today in the US Yahoo! is launching a new homepage. The homepage will be more focussed on the user. As a user you can customize the page to your whishes with (both from Yahoo and form third parties) apps and widgets.

The page has a customizable menu in which the apps can be loaded. Yahoo created several widgets already for during the launch but users can add any site which provides RSS. The biggest change is however the amount of content on the page. Yahoo cleared the page of a lot of content, making it better readable.

The changes make the Yahoo homepage a page which Yahoo hopes will be the starting page for many users or even better: a new kind of iGoogle. If this will succeed is doubtfull.

Yahoo launches the page today in the US. Europe will have to wait, but France and the UK, together with India, are up next. If you go to though chances are you won't be seeing the new page right away. It will be given as an 0pt-in choice for those interested.

    I think some search engines are overwhelming with the amount of content provided. I like to use - it provides clean relevant results and if I choose to, I can see results from Twitter as well. If I want to go to Facebook or ebay, I can go directly to those sites. I don't need an app clogging up my search.
