The main change to the redesign is the links column on the left. It used to contain links to Yahoo! services. This column is now called “My Favorites” and users can customize it with widgets and apps by Yahoo! and third parties. Example third party widgets/apps are Facebook and New York Times, allowing you to access the services without leaving Yahoo! home page.

By adding this “My Favorites” feature, Yahoo! is expecting more users will make Yahoo! their default home page. This is certainly appealing to existing users who uses a number of Yahoo! services such as mail and Flickr. However for users who rely heavily on services such as Facebook, Twitter, last.fm etc, nothing beats using the services directly on respective websites.
Yahoo! is working to let users sync this customizations between the website and the mobile versions of Yahoo!.
