    And it's still way too cluttered for my liking.

  4. For me it looks plain and simple and not as functional. I find it funny, as computing devices get more powerful we see more basic and simple designs.

    Basic & simple is good.

    I don't see how making things less cluttered equates to less functional.

    I've have never used Yahoo and that'll probably continue.

    There's nothing more useless than a "trending now" section. Why do I care what a bazillion celebrity-worshiping morons are obsessed with? Instead of that, how about some local weather? And what exactly is the "watch the show" link for? Some context would've been nice.

    I hate this. Its too much text plastered onto a blank white background.

    Use a script to make it how you like it lol

    People still use the old youtube layouts via scripts. I've seen some for various sites

    That's been there for years. Even techspot has a trending section

    Idk what website you're using, I see a local weather section right under it

    What's even better is that there a My Yahoo page (been there for a while also) that you can choose to make your homepage instead and customize it to how you want it also :|

    Yes, it's that same "clean" design aesthetic crap that continues to ruin the user interface experience.

    Maybe I shot my mouth off too quickly. I guess I'll give it a try one of these days.

    I notice how nobody has so far mentioned just how bloody similar, almost exactly the same, just with a few simple tweaks as Microsofts MSN page it is.

    Move the News, Sport, Etc. tabs to a sidebar and left align the search bar, then tell me how big a difference there is.
