The revamped e-mail -- Yahoo calls it the ``most significant overhaul'' ever of Yahoo Mail -- is a stark departure from traditional Web-based e-mail services. Users can easily scroll through all the messages in their inboxes, drag and drop messages to folders, delete messages with a single keystroke and use many of the standard keyboard shortcuts common to desktop e-mail programs.
The underpinning of the new e-mail interface is a technology known as Dynamic HTML, which quickly refreshes a user's browser window even before the browser is done communicating with Yahoo's servers. The technology eliminates the delays that come from waiting for Web pages to reload.
