Yahoo.com is an Internet news portal, as well as a directory of Yahoo's various Web services. It's one of the highest-trafficked sites in the world.

Since last year, Yahoo has been testing the next generation of its home page to a small group of users. This new version will let users customize what elements of information they want, as well tie in applications and services from third parties. However, unlike Yahoo's "My Yahoo" service, these applications will be given a much higher profile.
