I wrote about Yahoo's latest redesign of Mail, which brings it much closer to feature parity with Gmail while adding some nice twists of its own:
In August, Yahoo put former Xobni CEO Jeff Bonforte in charge of its communications products, which also include Messenger, Groups, Contacts, and Calendar. Xobni, which Yahoo acquired in July, built plugins designed to make the inbox more useful; the new Yahoo Mail shares that objective. "Our average user already has thousands of messages," Bonforte said in an interview with The Verge. "This is the beginning of helping them see the inbox can be more, not less. It’s part file system, part digital memory, part note-taking environment, part collaboration suite. It’s all those things, but how can we create a more collaborative environment?"
