The new-look Yahoo homepage includes more content and amount of data on tap, but does so in a less frantic way. The new Yahoo homepage has been designed to work through desktop and mobile devices, smartphones and tablet optimized versions.

The company’s goal after the introduction of such formats in the US early this year, is to play a key role in the online portal’s bid and attract European advertisers from 2014 onwards.
