Yahoo! Mail redesigned
June 15, 2004 at 8:03 AM
It seems that Yahoo! has launched the redesign of Yahoo! Mail today. The site does use more CSS for the design, but the layout is still driven by tables... which is not always a terrible thing, but in this case it is as the performance of the pages is dramatically slower thanks to the addition of a refined design which uses more graphics. In Yahoo!'s own words it is "a streamlined interface that's even easier to use." If you asked me what architecture has changed or what usability enhancements have been made, I'd have a hard time trying to identify those for you. To top things off, the link to their help page listed in the email that announces the redesign to existing users points to a 404 error.
