Product My Yahoo Web BETA
Excitement Level (1-10): 7
Good stuff, but all the elements have been available in other products for over 5 years. (Why not just get a free bookmark manager, that has online capabilities, the abilities to track site updates and that is also a browser - like Check&Get??) The vast majority of Yahoo's bookmark oriented features already go unused. Most people won't use this product if it adds an extra toolbar to the browser, or requires opening a new window. Its only useful if you are already using Opera, Firefox or a simliar product with tabbed window viewing. And about 80% of the world IS NOT at this point.
Final Grade: C-, lack creativity, a day too late, not convienent.

It's simple and free.
