Interface Tweaks to Search.Yahoo.com Interface

I’ve noticed a tweak to the clutter-free and ad-free Search.Yahoo.com interface this morning. Now included on the page, directly below the search box are:
+ Three news headlines (and a direct link to Yahoo News)
+ A direct link to Yahoo Finance along with Dow Jones and NASDAQ Averages
+ Yahoo Mail users can login and have direct links to their inbox (along with the number of new messages). A direct link to compose mail is also visible.

Removing these features from the interface can be easily accomplished by simply clicking them closed.

For about a year, Search.Yahoo.com users have been able to personalize which search tabs are visible on the page. Look for the “edit” link directly above the search box.
