Yahoo Mail update to bring cleaner look, better performance
Cnet is reporting that a "Minty" (the project's codename) upgrade is coming and will include not only a cleaner, sexier interface but also greatly improved performance. Yahoo! hopes the changes will help stem the tide of users that are migrating to other services; they have lost 7% of their total base since this time last year. In that same period, Gmail grew 22%, and Hotmail grew a modest 3%.
Yahoo! has already lost the number one spot in India to Gmail. Does anyone want to bet on whether or not they can hold on to the top spot elsewhere around the globe?
