Yahoo launched a redesigned homepage today. The company said it is their most significant homepage redesign ever. Users can now fully customize their Yahoo homepage. The new design is cleaner than their previous designs. It is also better organized and less cluttered.

One of the best features of the homepage is a new My Favorites panel. The panel includes Yahoo properties as well as external sites such as Facebook and eBay. Users can add their own sites to the panel. Users can also add widgets Yahoo calls Apps from yahoo’s Apps Gallery to the panel.

Users can even enter their own social networking status on the new homepage.

US visitors should see the new design up today. A Yahoo mobile homepage update is scheduled for next week.
