Yahoo Reinvents the Web Portal
Want to know what the future for big web portals will look like? YahooÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s developer team might just have an answer. Using YUI 2.x and YUI 3-based framework, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re working on a new front page that will enable extensive customization for users; developers, on the other hand, will be able to create third party applications for the page.
Developers should go over to the YUI blog for the nitty gritty details. From the userÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s standpoint, this means that YahooÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new homepage will be very customizable, with a dashboard area (on the left side of the screenshot) where youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to check Yahoo and non-Yahoo applications and services. On the other hand, Yahoo will Ã¢â‚¬Å“learnÃ¢â‚¬Â from your browsing habits and bring you content tailored to your needs. Finally, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll feel more connected, as youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to see what your friends are up to, be it on one of YahooÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s services or the web in general.
