Hello, Slashdot readers.
I am making my first post in this journal because I've started a second blog over at Yahoo! I've used Yahoo! for email for about eight years now, and I've changed IRL addresses enough in years past that I don't want to change e-mail addresses again. Since anything at Yahoo! can gate into anything else there...
Yahoo! is pushy. I'm still mad at it for hiding the directory from its main page when they redesigned it a couple of years back because they wanted to keep its users in its system. I intend to keep their classic email as long as possible.
I'm wondering why Yahoo! installed a toolbar on a browser that I never use. I'm just surmising this, since I let Yahoo! install one and have not seen a trace of new toolbar on Firefox since. (I have IE7 but so far haven't used it.)
Don't think that Google's increasing dominance and relative "non-evil" is going to make Yahoo! surrender any time soon. Yahoo! has its own vs. of "extend, embrace."
