Editors' Review

Yahoo.com is an Internet news and search portal, as well as a directory of Yahoo's various Web services. It's one of the highest-trafficked sites in the world. Users can catch up on daily news items, weather, horoscopes, and even get a quick peek at activity in their Yahoo Web mailboxes. Along the top of it's Web site is easy access to Yahoo's Web search.

Since last year, Yahoo has been testing the next generation of its home page to a small group of users. This new version lets users customize what elements of information they want, as well tie in applications and services from third parties. However, unlike Yahoo's "My Yahoo" service, these applications are given a much higher profile.

Despite recent developments to Yahoo Search, such as the capability to search for music and playback songs directly from the results page, that branch of the service has been losing traction to Google and Microsoft's latest baby, Bing. In fact, Yahoo has partnered with Microsoft to farm out the backend search to its newfound friend. Still, Yahoo remains a popular site for users of the service's free e-mail and those who prefer a home page with a wealth of information and links to a sparse, search-oriented one.
