"Welcome to my review about an email that my dad uses it is yahoo; I think yahoo isn't that good as hotmail, hotmail has more features and it is easier to use and send messages. In this review you will find stuff about how to join, how to change your themes and many many more. The free emails are really good; they've got lots of interesting things and entertaining stuff like music, movies ===~~~How do you join yahoo? ~~~=== All you need ..." Read review

Yahoo, the compass of the Net

Advantageseasy to use, accurate

Disadvantagessometimes, too much info

"" If, indeed, Internet has to offer much to which knows what it seeks, the same Internet is quite as able to supplement the degradation of those and those which navigate there without compass. " Laurent Laplante " Being unaware of by abuse information " (French quotation). With the permanent danger, underlined in this quotation, which cunningly watches for the ingenuous Net surfer who would have ventured without guide in this labyrinth of information, ..." Read review

Good search UPDATE

AdvantagesFast and accurate

DisadvantagesToo many topics to access on one page could be easier and clearer

"Yahoo! is brilliant, free e-mail and web hosting and searching and ..... why not give yahoo a go. A comprehensive place to find anything on the web and with many topics to search from including all the popular areas such as computers and the internet, similar to ciao in a way. You can never go wrong with Yahoo! and Yahoo! Geocities (Yahoo!'s web pages). There are many different countries that Yahoo! covers so all nationalities can get in on the shear ..." Read review

Yahoo, use it with a Google tool bar

AdvantagesYahoo, excellent directory structure

Disadvantagesdoesn't "crawl" the web and depends on registered sites

"Yahoo is the search engine of choice for many, but have they made the right choice? I've used Yahoo for four years now and find it useful for some things but very poor for others. I think it's a matter of understanding what Yahoo is that will really make the difference to your searching, and if you use Yahoo with other search engines you will really be able to get the best from the Internet. At the end of this opinion I give a useful suggestion about ..." Read review

Yahoo With Google

AdvantagesMost popular search engine on the internet, combines every other service across the 'net in one place.

DisadvantagesToo many dead links, too slow a queue to get listed, refuses to pass to Google instantly, you have to tell it to go there else it'll just search the categories

"The Yahoo search engine comes in numerous flavours, all designed for local languages and communities. You get the .com one for the American market and there's a .co.uk for the UK and a few others as well. Now there is nothing new about this, other search engines have been doing this for ages, providing localised content (though whether people actually use it is another opinion altogether). There isn't much to say about the Yahoo search engine, ..." Read review

wahoo to yahoo

Advantagesalmost everything

Disadvantagesalmost nothing

"Searching for something specific on the web used to be hard.Trying to find something on George Washington on another search engine you'd find tons of blind links and stuff you weren't looking for. Yet with Yahoo! Search I found it to be much easier of a chore to find something specific on the web with it's main and sub categories. Nearly everyone in the world knows what Yahoo.com is.It being only one of the few internet search engines that advertise ..." Read review

Great but not as a directory

AdvantagesGreat extra Features

DisadvantagesA bit dated

"...UK you would go to yahoo.co.uk or in Germany it would be yahoo.de Yahoo! Auction: On the auctions, you can buy basically anything you want and most of the things in it are available at reasonable prices. You can buy anything from a new PlayStation 2 to a Food Processor. You can either search it or go through the category. Yahoo! Mail: I rather the Yahoo mail to Hotmail, because it is quicker to load and easier to use. It also gives you ..." Read review

Yahoooooooooooo

AdvantagesGreat way of meeting people. Excellent search engine.

DisadvantagesToo many usernames, therefore, creating a problem with your own ID.

"www.yahoo.co.uk is, I reckon, one of the fastest growing search engines going in the world. With millions of members across the globe, everybody who is on the Internet has heard, in one way or another, of Yahoo! There's no limits on what you can do on Yahoo! Apart from the obvious searching for things you want, either in the whole of Yahoo, in England only, or Ireland only, there is also numerous other things you can do with Yahoo.

There's more to Yahoo than meets the eye.

AdvantagesIncredible selection, number of players

DisadvantagesNone

" There’s more to Yahoo than just a Search Engine and Free e-mail. If you’re a games enthusiast then you will absolutely love Yahoo’s Game Page. The selection of games is unbelievable and I am listing them here, as follows: Card Games --------------- Blackjack, Go Fish, Bridge, Hearts, Canasta, Pinochle, Cribbage, Poker, Euchre, Sheepshead, Gin & Spades Board Games ----------------- Backgammon, Dots, Checkers, Go, ..."

My personal choice of search engine

Advantagesgood search engine, free e-mail, quick site

Disadvantagesusual dodgy links produced

"I have to say that whenever I want to search the web for anything, Yahoo is the search engine that I choose. I find them to offer a good search facility that always gives me decent results and keeps the useless pages to a minimum. As for layout its a pretty standard style with the usual links to various different sections which help to speed up the process. Yahoo like Lycos also have a very good (probably better than Lycos) news section which you ..." Read review

Yahoo - more like BooHoo

AdvantagesNot many now

DisadvantagesBroken links, no new sites ........

"Yahoo has completely lost it's way over the past year or so. What used to be a great way of finding decent and relevant web sites is turned into a disorganised mess. Getting a new site listed is now next to impossible - and that is the opinion of many web developers that I know. The great thing about Yahoo was that dead links were removed swiftly, but that is no longer the case. The introduction of free e-mail, auctions, chat, shopping and everything ..." Read review

Good old YAHOO

Advantagesquick and full of info

Disadvantagesnowt

"Ever since I started using the internet, I've been using yahoo. Even people who know nothing about the net at all, seem to have heard of Yahoo. Even with so many other search engines around, Yahoo has always stood taller than the rest. I'm sure that in someway or another, it even led me to this place. Searches on yahoo are very easy. You basically type in whatever you want to look for, and then it finds it for you. Your search can either be more ..." Read review
