Yahoo! News Beta

Yahoo! News, long the Internet's (and thus the world's) most convenient source of general news, is beta-testing a new format.

So far, the new design seems barely more functional than the old one. Since I'm in the school computer labs at the moment, I haven't tried it in any browser except Internet Explorer.

Yahoo! News has been due for a visual makeover for at least three years. Its template still has that "new economy" feel to it. Somehow, though, I prefer that look. It's sensible and functional, as if Yahoo! understands the nature of news: raw, industrial, unpolished.
