Reports on Yahoo!'s new design has been released as far back as late May with the rumors of Yahoo!'s new home page and inside pages. Now Yahoo! is publically asking people to test out the new design. In fact, do a search at Yahoo! Search on the term search engine and you will see this message to use try out the new design. Here, give it a try below.
The major difference in the design is the top portion of the page. Its cleaner, the tabs are less tabular, results are shown up higher on the page, the related search is cleaner and the definitions is at the top of the page. Overall, I like the new layout.
