As you may know, Yahoo has been toying around with homepage redesigns again. It really hasn't been all that long since the company launched a new look, but it apparently feels it's time to start anew yet again.

As reported earlier this month, users were seeing different versions floating around. Michael Bonnett Jr. tweeted this one out at the time:

Now, Kara Swisher at Re/code is showing what she says is an internal screenshot from the company. This version is pretty similar to the one in the above tweet with a few tweaks. The biggest noticeable difference is that there is a larger number of trending searches at the top of the page.

Swisher says that while this version could still change before the roll-out, CEO Marissa Mayer intends to unveil the new look next month. Apparently some of Yahoo's sales team hasn't been pleased with a smaller display ad on the right. This is understandable as Yahoo's display businesses has declined, though search has been on the rise, as has its native ad business, which gets plenty of play in the new layout.
