Yahoo mail finally relented and gave me back my classic view. I can read it again. I hope it lasts.
The upgrade was horrible. It wanted me to change my screen resolution to accomodate their new ad layout. It made the page so small, I couldn't read it at all. Even keeping the larger resolution the damn thing was nearly unreadable and the functionality sucked so much I practically stopped checking the account. I used to check it several times a day.
I think they realized that it was better to get the refresh more often than it was to bombard me with extra ads. It's not like I ever click on them anyway. But whatever, it said I could have classic back forever. I hope they meant it.
