Did Yahoo.com Change their Login Link Position?

[ Edited ]

Sorry if off topic, but Since Norton is  my security always wondering

 

In this case has there been a chnage within the last few days on the yahoo.com home page?

I always had  the login on the right side of the page now it is on the upper left

Calls,

 

 

On the Yahoo homepage itself, mine is on the right, if I click mail, its on the right. Viewing the security page and a couple other pages within yahoo.... its on the upper left.

 

The homepage has been the same for months now, since they fully converted it.

It's strange that if on the homepage its on the left for you.

 

I even messed with the page options and the log in is still on the right.. hmph.

@Calls websites with large amounts of traffic always go through constant testing to optimize the experience and flow. You may be part of a random test group that sees a "beta" front page. Based on metrics and response from this small portion of traffic, Yahoo can glean findings and either reject the change or modify it further. Changing the location or size of the search bar at the top-center of Yahoo.com could change the number of queries from it by 10s of 1000s per day.
