Tuesday, May 16th, 2006p>Richard MacManus has posted about the new Yahoo! homepage that has been been launched as a preview (beta) for those with the correct browsers ;)
There are a lot of nice dhtml features on the new site, but instead of covering them again, one of the interesting ideas was the top widget that walks you through “what is new”.
As soon as you get into the helper widgets, your screen is taken over and overlayed with a nice walk through. This could be a nice pattern in itself as we could add really interactive help into our ajax applications that are truly builtin and showing you in the REAL application (not just showing screen shots).
What do you think of the new design?

- Dynamic Paging
