I kinda did think the Yahoo homepage was a mess, but I don’t know if it looks any nicer (looks kinda Microsoftified, in terms of the solid, gradientless, borderless bar above the news feed).
I like how I can freaking finally customize the news feed to my liking (as in, removing all the articles I don’t care about, like sports or celebrities). It is a little annoying on how it removes things by tag, instead of category, but oh well. Customizable news feed. Just what I always wanted.
