  6. Add Chromium as supported browser

    Chromium is a faster web browser than Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Explorer, Tor, etc. Yahoo! mail is distinguished by its lack of versatility when it comes to supporting other web browsers, it makes the platform rigid against other email providers, and ultimately it may also cost Yahoo! mail lose clients.

  10. Screen your ads please. Or give an X so we can delete it.

    Jet.com ads feature sexually positioned ladies. My kids see that. There is no way to delete it. I am not against ads, sometimes I see something interesting and I click it. But you should make the software so that if I don't click on it, or CERTAINLY if I can click it off, I'm not interested in that ad, please don't show it again. I have no idea what magazines featuring ladies in undies bend over a car spread eagle or one holding her naked breasts has to do with Jet.com but I will never go to that webpage to…

  16. I do not like that yahoo asks me all the time to add a phone number or email to recover, nor do I like to be asked to change password

    basic email account should be simple and easy. options should be optional, and access must be guaranteed quickly and in the least complicated possible way.

  18. Too Much Spam Mails.

    Too much spam mails. I never subscribe to any mailing list or news letter.
    But every day my mail id gets added to new-new mailing lists & news letters by itself.
