    first of all, let me say what a great site you have…now to my rant…perhaps the “seamless experience” promised by yahoo will be seamless if one does not use opera (v11.11) as your browser. when i went to try the latest version of yahoo mail i was told to switch my browser. maybe i should switch back to internet explorer 6. also, i am curious as to whether the new version allows you to collect yahoo mail in an e-mail client or do you still have to use something like yPops to import ones yahoo mail…harris

    2X faster. Really? Yahoo always says that.

    I am totally done with Yahoo!. Yahoo! Site Search was removed from my website and my Yahoo! bookmark was deleted. The reason is that Yahoo! requires a Yahoo! Mail Plus subscription for email forwarding and that is a deal-breaker. You have to try Windows Live Mail. It is as advanced as the Project Phoenix by AOL Mail.
