Yahoo rolling out new home page, report says

The site reportedly is making gradual changes, such as creating a separate box for weather and reducing the number of links to Yahoo sites.

Yahoo's homepage is being updated to look like this, according to Business Insider. Business Insider
Marissa Mayer has only been at Yahoo a couple months, but a report today says she's already making changes to the company's home page.

The changes, which seem fairly modest to this writer, are slowing being rolled out, Business Insider reports.

The story notes some of the changes include a search bar that's now centered and is part of a darker toolbar that scrolls down the page, as well as separate boxes for local weather and astrology. Another change is fewer links to Yahoo sites on the left side, with Dating, Flickr, Games and others now apparently dropped from the list.

Yahoo won't confirm any of these changes, so we'll see what, if anything, emerges.

"Yahoo is continually developing and testing new product concepts in an effort to offer the most delightful experiences for users and advertisers," a spokeswoman said. "We don't have anything new to announce at this time."

Here's what Yahoo currently looks like:
