Yahoo has recently redesigned their homepage. Although I think the new design is an improvement, I’m not going to argue the merits of the redesign. What really impressed me, and what I’d like to hear your opinion on, is how they created a walkthrough of the changes.
I’ve put together a brief walkthrough with commentary. It’s a 4.6 MB Flash file (mainly due to the audio), so if you’re interested, read on.
The new design is only currently supported by Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 1.5, so your mileage may vary. The layout is pretty straightforward. It’s optimized for 1024 x 768 resolution instead of 800 x 600. Normally, I wouldn’t have clicked the walkthrough, but my curiousity got the best of me, and I was impressed.
What do you think?
