Regarding home page carousel overlay
The only reason why I was coming on yahoo home page is to know some gossip with they provide in homepage carousel.
(I was a ymail user. but then it got changed so from last 4 years using gmail.)
Yahoo always makes this mistake. It gave so big changes which users dont like and they leave using yahoo.
The overlay in new carousel is cutting the images. it may be good as search engine optimization. But its really very very irritating for user.
The previous carousel was better.
Or There should be easy way to disable this overlay of heading and all details.
Otherwise many users like me will stop using it.
