Yahoo! Launches New Canada Homepage

Yahoo! Canada is getting the homepage treatment that the U.S. page got not too long ago. The new homepage, which goes live today, enables users to customize their homepages with apps and social features.

"The Web is an indispensible part of Canadians' lives, it's where they socialize, stay in touch with family and friends, buy products and services and share their photos and memories," says Matt Idema, Yahoo! vice president and country manager, Canada.

Canadians will also now be able to access email from select email providers, including GMail and Yahoo! Additionally, users will be able to sync their PC and mobile experiences.

"Whether for their PC or mobile device, Yahoo! Canada is bringing greater simplicity and relevance to the way Canadians experience the Web. Our new homepage is designed to help Canadians stay on top of what is going on in their world, and around the world no matter where they are," explained Idema.
