And so Yehey finally goes the beta route, with a change of interface. The new look is a lot cleaner, cooler and easier on the eyes. But it somewhat reminds me of Yahoo. There’s an option to switch to Full Mode that shows Yehey’s portal content, much like how the frontpage used to look like. It even has a new tagline – pinoy ‘to p’re.
You can search the Web, News and Archives. The Web Search is enhanced by Google. The News Search returns results from major dailies, but there seems to be a preference for Philstar articles. The Archive Search returns results of articles posted on Yehey’s channels, some of which have been syndicated from Manila Times and Manila Standard.
There’s a newsbar that reminds me of Gmail‘s web clips. Of course, the Yehey Directory is still there. And finally, Yehey Mail seems to be working already.
Just like most new things on the web, there are bugs. The Sign In button points to a server that doesn’t exist. Some of the search results point to dead links. Hopefully, these bugs are gone within this week.
