Yahoo considers another home page redesign

The company has published its latest thoughts on how its home page should look, deciding to elevate top search results and links to Web applications.

Yahoo is testing another redesign of its home page, emphasizing news feeds and applications as well as search results.

The company is testing the most recent design with certain users, and while it's somewhat similar to Yahoo's current look and feel, it is a bit of a departure from the most recent plan for a redesign shared by Yahoo in March, as noted by PaidContent.org. For example, the new design calls out the top 10 search results at a given time in the upper right-hand corner of the site, a box that appears at the absolute bottom of Yahoo's current site and that was absent from the March mock-ups.

Yahoo also dropped the gray color on the left side rail of the page in favor of a white background, while also adding more choices for users to add feeds from their favorite Web sites and services. That rail also includes applications developed for the Yahoo page that let users check auction results on eBay, for example.

No time frame was given for the arrival of the new design, but further tweaks are probably not out of the question. Yahoo also announced that its mobile site redesign is out of beta and rolling out to a wider audience.
