Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer this week introduced the new version of Yahoo's once-dominant e-mail service. Yahoo says the revamp was implemented for faster access to e-mail, a more simplistic user interface and fewer distractions. The company also wants to keep the look of the service consistent across a number of platforms.
"Since it's such an important part of our daily lives, we're making a few improvements to Yahoo! Mail," Mayer said in a blog post.
She continued on to say that Yahoo Mail's revamp was designed with speed in mind, allowing users to browse through e-mails faster. Moreover, the inbox is more straightforward to navigate, the CEO added.
Yahoo was recently ordered by a Mexican court to pay $2.7 billion due to an alleged breach of contract pertaining to a yellow pages listings service.
