My Yahoo Upgrade Leaves Beta

Matt Hicks at eWeek reports that the My Yahoo beta that's been around for about two months has gone live.

Since launching the beta, Yahoo has doubled the number of searchable feeds to 300,000, [Scott] Gatz [Yahoo's Senior Director of Personlization Product] said. Users also can subscribe to any feed by entering its URL and by browsing a directory of feeds that Yahoo editors maintain. My Yahoo has about 20 million users, and Gatz said that millions chose to switch to the beta of the upgraded service. He declined to specify what proportion of users has made the switch. Also during the beta, Yahoo fixed a series of bugs and improved My Yahoo's Web compatibility with the Firefox 1.0 Web browser, Gatz said.
