Yahoo! TV has had a face lift. and it has a lot of the usual suspects from YUI:
Nice smooth tabs:
A carousel for picks, and a mini tv listings on the right side:
The full tv listings show up on demand as you scroll down:
Some are not too enthused. Dave Winer commented:
Yahoo says they improved Yahoo TV, but imho, they broke it. The listings page, which until today was the only page I knew or cared about (they just added a bunch of community features) took a few seconds to load, now it’s an Ajax thing, and it loads as you scroll. Great. There’s a delay every time I hit Page Down. Now instead of finding out if there’s anything on in seconds it takes minutes. That’s an improvement?
The listings issue could be solved by a) loading the entire thing again, or by staying ahead of the game a bit, as then you wouldn’t notice (e.g. eagerly load at least one section).
What do you think of the new look?
