Following months of trials, Yahoo (YHOO +0.6%) has taken the wraps off a huge home page revamp.

Yahoo's home page views were pegged at 4.4B/month last year, making the page a major source of ad revenue. Marissa Mayer suggested at her Goldman conference talk Facebook integration is a priority for Yahoo.

    Yahoo web pages are, in general, cluttered and slow, often with malformed adware scripts, that always seem to lock things up.

    My home Yahoo page has been the starting point of my day for years, and I'm so grateful Yahoo hasn't made the serious error of eliminating it as Google is about to do the end of 2013.
