Just got my invite to Yahoo! Mail Beta.
It's got some nice new usability features that I welcome in my email client.
- Preview Pane for advance reading
- Drag and Drop support for organizing your mail into your folders (a big thumbs up for someone like me that likes to compartmentalize my mail)
- Multi non-contiguous select using CTRL+Click
- Multi coniguous select using SHIFT+Click
3 and 4 are what we are used to in spreadsheet tools so no steep learning curve there.
I like to general feel of the new interface, it's more akin to a traditional email client on your PC (Outlook Express et al) than the online mail readers.
I am a very big user of Gmail, I would welcome some development in this direction from the Google Dome.
