Web interface adopts Gmail-like touches

Yahoo has launched a significant update of its Mail service. The web interface, foremost, has been updated with a cleaner look, as well as an improved search function. One AllThingsD source claims that Yahoo was deliberately aiming at making the site "more Gmail-like." Yahoo is also reportedly working on an overhaul of its homepage. The company's new CEO, Marissa Mayer, has meanwhile stated in a blog post that the new Mail should roll out to most users.

Accompanying the web update are the first releases of native iPhone and Windows 8 apps. The iPhone app includes features like push notifications, auto-completing addresses, and gesture commands for managing and tagging messages. So far, no native iPad interface is available.
