"New" home page
The "new" homepage is too cramped up, please put it back to how it was before the update. It was easier to navigate, and looked less "messy".

I like the look of the home page. It's cleaner, crisper and more modern. I didn't like that you put your "agenda" (tabs) above my "Your Yahoo" tabs, collected after your last update. As of a couple of days ago, my personal tabs are completely gone.
Also, apparently Y! is determining which info I want in my news stream based on the fact I like baseball, a lot. On the day of the Boston bombing, and other big news days, real news was about 12th (or further down) on the stream, after every sports story known, including that of teams not even in CA. I don't want you determining what I care about.
The net here is, you don't know me better than I do, no matter what your data say. So I'm stuck with a news feed that doesn't represent my interests and tabs that represent yours. Where do I fit in to "Your Yahoo" now?
The look and feel of the page does not trump usability for me. Yahoo won't be my homepage if what Y! does best (a great portal to everything) is no longer a feature.

I have used yahoo as my home page for 12 years or longer, I am now looking for a new home page. This new one is no good the news set up sucks. It did have local news with no mouse clicks. Please give us the option of using the old home page. This is a bigger mistake than netflex made last year.look where there stock went from $300 down to $50.00.

WAY TOO Narrow which makes it all cramped up... what's with all the blank white space on both sides of the screen?? what a waste of space!! I like the large amount of info, but please format it better.
Ok, it's like day 7 or something. It is torture. The new homepage is just awful and dysfunctional.
I now hate the color purple and I want to smash all the goofy little juvenile icons.
It sucks so bad on the iPad, I won't go there.
It is useless on my phone.
AND, absolutely NO response from YAHOO.
Yep, that's gonna help.
msn.com here I come.....
OMG. Are you kidding? I was horrified to open up my Yahoo home page last week. Thought it might be a bad dream, but no, it's still here. Sorry, Yahoo, it's time to say Adios. I literally cannot look at the page anymore - it was a great relationship while it lasted, but it "doesn't work better" for me. It's not me, it's you.
It looks awful. I don't like the never ending scroll, the colors, or the smaller pictures. I remember one time before when Yahoo changed, they changed back quickly. Hope they do this time, and possibly learn from it this time. If not, many will leave.

I don’t like anything about new homepage. Old one was much better.
Please Please Please when will it end?
Please give back the old homepage.
EVERY comment hates it.
What more do you need, YAHOO?
Do what your customers want or - a lot will leave......
I hate the new format for the home page -- it is overcrowded, cluttered, and junky lookiing. I hate the infinite scroll as well as the headers that pop up for every news story. The colors are garish and it looks less professional than what you had in the past. I will be switching to another news/search page if it stays like this - and I have been with yahoo for a long time.
Oh, the many things I hate about your page. I looks cluttered. it is slower. I'm unable to scross down the lines and open in a new tab. Not everyone is using ****** tablets and smartphones. More categories were accessibel under the old home page without havign to go to the 'more' drop down. Kill the new page, or watch more homepage defaults switch away. Dump the 'infinite scroll' gah, to annying to deal with, and too slwo to move to the top of the page once you've went far down. There is nothing I like about the new page. Nothing at all. You've added no useful new features.
Ok, what gives?
Tonight I got a 10 minute reprieve and the old page appeared.
Seriously, don't tease me.
I am soooo headed to msn.com.
Have been with Yahoo for over 13 years - same email address.
Yahoo is making it easy to hate them and more and more desirable to switch homepages and maybe even email.....
Come on folks - give the old page back. NOW
I cannot think of ANYTHING about the new page that is good.
Purple and shiny and juvenile - YUCK.
Cluttered and unorganized - SUCKS.
5000 stories in one big random row - No words - just sucks.
I want my old homepage back - NOW.
The purple shiny version is just rotten.
Whoever thought this was needed was dead wrong.
P.S. it sucks even worse on the iPad.
CHANGE IT BACK - NOW AND LEAVE IT ALONE.
IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE FIXED - WASN'T BROKEN.

The new front page sucks. It is cluttery and I cannot find my favorite pages because of the stories that I don't want to see. Please change it back to the way that it was.
bigger pics are great...until you put text over them and cover them up. The old page was much better.
I also liked having all the different section on the page at once instead of having to chose only one subject I see below the pics... The old page was much better.
I agree, the new page is tooooo busy. The last page was clean, easy to read and just much better. Not a fan at all of the new page. PLEASE change it back to the old yahoo page.
The new homepage is horrible. It was much better before. Unless it is changed back to the way it was, I will use another news service for my homepage. The old homepage was great.
DO NOT like the new homepage! Change it back! Have used yahoo for over a
decade. Ask a user!!! Checking out other homepages.
Absolutely hate it! Too large a picture up top to start with, do not want some to be glaring out at one. Too many things just actually jumping at you and too may unimportant articles that are of no interest to one. The settings to get rid of them do not work. Want my old home page back or I will change after 10 years. HATE IT!
I do not like the color blueish purple, go back to the way it was, please.
NEW HOME PAGE IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, CAN'T REMOVE Y SITES, CAN'T REMOVE OR ADD FAVORITE SITES, IT'S TIME TO DUMP YAHOO AFTER 10 TEARS AND GO TO SOMETHING BETTER LIKE GOOGLE, THIS IS GOING TO BE A BIG MISTAKE ON YAHOO'S PART!!!!!!!!!!!!
