You Can Stop Looking for those Handy E-Mail Tabs in Yahoo's New and "Improved" Interface...
Look, I don't want to be "that guy" who bitches about a wonderful, absolutely FREE service. You know, one that Yahoo is providing me in the form of the very sleek, easy to remember contact address of firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is one that currently houses some 50,000 emails of mine and is the one and only email I actually check. (Other "feeder emails" get bounced to this account, like the ESPN980 one and the other on Yahoo Sports Radio).
Like Chico Esquela once said about baseball: "Yahoo email has been beddy beddy good to me..."
But holy hell you purple demons! Why. Why oh why oh why??????
Tab opening emails WAS MY GO TO MOVE Jerry! I used it ALL THE TIME! Especially on the radio, when I wanted to read 2 or 3 in a row, without having to either...
a. Print them
b. Open an entirely new browser window
c. Search for them in some temporary folder.
Nope. That feature is gone, gone, gone.
And of course, I had to GOOGLE SEARCH IT (take that, Yahoo! I'm using somebody else for SEARCH! Bwhahahahah!) to find out.
'Twould be nice, dontchathink, if Yahoo could make a big bold simple page that said basically, here's what's new, here's what's gone, and (if they were feeling generous in their reasoning) explain the thinking or rationale behind each one.
Ahhhh. Never mind.
I found this article which basically deals with it all.
Have a nice Wednesday. If you are like me, Yahoo just stole at least an hour of your life.
But I'm not bitching. Thank you, Yahoo, for the free email.
PS: Please don't hack my account. Thank you.
