Yahoo! Groups gets a facelift

I opened up Yahoo! Groups and I see that it has got a new look.

I really hate the choice of colors – light blue really doesn’t cut it for me – I can’t figure out how to change that in the settings. The ‘Management’ section for moderators is really useful. If it was already there in the old look, I haven’t noticed it before. The vitality alerts are interesting and the GMail-style snippets look of the groups is a nice touch.

Now, if only they did something to browse by threads like Google Groups conversations, that would be great.

Sidebar: Totally unrelated, but has anybody used FuseMail? The demo looks cool.

Update: I totally fail to understand one thing – why is the new and redesigned (emphasis on new) design of Yahoo! Groups not using XHTML?! They are still using HTML 4.0. Even MSN Search is XHTML Strict compliant!

  1. The Yahoo Groups homepage is impressive with it clean design and good use of style sheets. I like the My Groups sidebar – gives you a sort of control panel to manage your groups! nice.

  2. Light blue is a universally neutral colour in that all other colours that exist are either offensive or have negative connotations in some religion, or culture.
