I have been a loyal Yahoo Mail user for over 10 years. The first email account I opened was Yahoo. Later I have opened Hotmail and Gmail accounts, but I have stayed with Yahoo and used it as my primary email account.
I liked Yahoo Mail, especially the tabs that allow me to have multiple emails open simultaneously. I can easily switch between inbox and other folders, from one message or draft to another, and work on multiple emails.
Over the years, Yahoo has gone through changes, good or bad, and I had no problems and complains. But not this time.
Sometime last week, Yahoo launched another major redesign of yahoo Mail, changed its interface without any notice. The new Yahoo Mail is terrible. The tabbed emails are gone. I have trouble when composing messages. I can’t get the text and cursor to stay where I want.
Not surprisingly, I found I am not the only Yahoo Mail user who is not happy with the change. There are over 200 comments and complains just to this one article titled Yahoo Mail Gets Another Redesign (Already).
So many loyal Yahoo users are frustrated with the new interface. They used all possible words you can think of to describe their frustrations and anger: problematic, screwed up, upset, blew it big time, so bad, very frustrated, sucks, flawed, annoyed, absolute OUTRAGE, hate it, a pain in the a_ _, a complete mess, really and truly crap, a giant leap backwards, WORST redesign ever, the worst upgrade, disgusted, fed up, getting worse instead of better, absolutely horrible, terrible, awful, unbelievable, unusable, stupid, Done with yahoo, I am leaving Yahoo, Bye yahoo …
There are more complains on the official Yahoo Forums: http://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/210695
There is even a petition against the new yahoo mail version:
I share the frustration and agree with the negative comments by other Yahoo users, so I signed the petition. I want the old Yahoo Mail back.
