Below is a bit of visual history of Yahoo’s various layouts from the 1990s to today*. Yahoo’s layout was once quirky – with homemade looking cartoon icons, like a baby representing “new” – but (as opposed to what happened with the layout over at Google.com) became a little more serious as the company grew.
*Note that in the early days, Yahoo’s homepage didn’t define any background color... which back in the mid-1990s, depending on your browser and settings, would default to gray. Update: Peter comments, “Yeah, but the input [areas] were not gray, and the 3d shading was different.”
