So today Yahoo started rolling out an updated version of their online email platform and by the looks of the source code, it has been rebuilt using the React JS Framework for the front end.
The design is quite similar to the previous iteration but there are lots of unique changes especially the in the settings area. There are also new theme and layout customization options that give the email client a fresh look and an inviting feel.
All in all, Yahoo are doing their very best to remain relevant in these challenging times when it is becoming harder to innovate new web experiences and to become the next billion dollar business. They will continue to remain my preferred email provider and I’m glad they aren’t giving up the fight just yet.
