Yahoo is tinkering around with its homepage again. It wasn’t all that long ago (last year in fact) that Yahoo rolled out a major redesign of its flagship property, but the company is apparently testing new looks yet again.
Some users are seeing very different version of the homepage than the one users have gotten accustomed to. Some haver been tweeting out screencaps:

This version has a menu bar on the left-hand side, which reportedly collapses to icons and expands. There’s a Mail widget, which lets you interact with Yahoo Mail from the same page, and there’s a generally more card-based design to the whole homepage. On the right, there’s a “Latest from Yahoo” Twitter feed. Trending topics appear higher on the screen.
It’s hard to say if Yahoo will end up rolling this one out, but it does seem more tablet-friendly, and generally just more modern-looking. It seems like an improvement to me. Just as a comparison, here’s what the Yahoo Homepage looks like today:
