Yahoo’s latest redesign experiment takes a page from Windows 8 tile design

Yahoo Windows 8 Inspired

Yahoo (YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer hasn’t finished experimenting with grand redesigns for her company’s homepage. Per AllThingsD, Yahoo’s latest attempted remake looks like it’s got more of a touchscreen focus and has borrowed some pointers from Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows 8 tile design. As AllThingsD notes, it’s not surprising that the new homepage redesign has an emphasis on touchscreen capabilities since Mayer said during her company’s last earnings call that “Yahoo will have to be a predominantly mobile company.” In addition to its Windows 8-like features, the new homepage also features “more simplified icons for various Yahoo properties, fewer text links, additional social and personalization aspects and — perhaps most importantly — no advertising module at the very top,” AllThingsD reports.
