yahoo home page

here you go
type
ipv4.yahoo.com

Thanks!!! The old home page is so much better than the new one.

Now I have to decide....Old Yahoo vs Google News.

I've always used 'My Yahoo' as my home page. Actually Google is my default home page, but I have My Yahoo bookmarked and click on there. An extra click but no big deal. Nothing has changed on My Yahoo that I can see.

+1 Goodbye Yahoo. It was wearing on me anyway. The columnists are idiots and the commenters are worse.

Imolder... I am in the process of setting it up. The ONLY thing I cannot seem to find is the source of the Yahoo! video feed - some of those "top video stories" are actually interresting from time to time, and I would like to see about adding it to My Way. Otherwise, MW looks great. I bit of a chore to customize it, but hey.... then it will be just what I want/need

I use the Google search page as my homepage, precisely because it is a clean slate, elegant and uncluttered.
