Yahoo Tweaks Its Homepage, Allows Content from All Over the Web [Updates]

21 Lug/09

Popular web portal Yahoo has been testing a new look and feature set for a while now, and today they’re pushing these changes out into the wild as a beta, opt-in feature.

Most notable to the update: Yahoo now lets users integrate widgets from any web site they want (like the Facebook widget you see above—click the screenshot for a closer look), with the intention, we suppose, of making Yahoo even more of a useful start page. In fact, Yahoo is already one of the most popular pages on the internet (second most visited, according to Wikipedia), so this new change seems to be aiming at keeping you there even longer.

According to CNET, this new rollout is by opt-in only; they say you can join in the fun by visiting http://yahoo.com/try new or by clicking Yahoo promotions. Unfortunately that hasn’t worked for us yet, but we’ll keep trying. In the meantime, if you’ve been able to try out the new Yahoo, let’s hear what you think in the comments.

Update: As reader lifeCoder pointed out below, changing the URL to http://yahoo.com/trynew seems to work. We were able to test adding Lifehacker to the homepage, which unfortunately didn’t work very well when using the basic homepage URL. When we went straight to the main Lifehacker feed, it seemed to work just fine, though.
