Yahoo To Revamp E-Mail And Search

Yahoo is planning to revamp its web services, including e-mail and search, in a move to increase its market share.

The internet search company has just announced that it is planning to give most of its services and products a major overhaul under its new product strategy, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The news was revealed by Yahoo's chief product officer Blake Irving while addressing a media event at the company's head office in Sunnyvale, California.

Yahoo has plans to integrate the web services with social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn.

Vice president for product management Kakul Srivastava has revealed in a blog post that the upcoming beta version of Yahoo Mail will sport a much cleaner, sleeker and faster look.

Irving laid emphasis on his three steps vision for Yahoo as "innovative technology company with the largest digital media content and communications business in the world."
