New & improved

Been using the Yahoo! Mail Beta for a few weeks now, and it’s a big improvement, no doubt inspired by competition from Google’s Gmail, which it beats hands down.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Yahoo Inc. (YHOO) said it is upgrading Yahoo Mail, the most popular Web e-mail program, to make it run more efficiently than other Web-based systems and nearly as fast as desktop e-mail.

The new version of Yahoo Mail works in a browser, just as existing versions of the program do, but Yahoo has developed ways to short-circuit the multi-second delays that typically delay any action taken in Web-based e-mail programs.

To try it, click on Options, and follow the links. And there’s a seamless way to switch back, if you want.
