  1. Favorites transform, hamburger menu, narrow down picture of the instance

    One tick down with the mouse wheel should transform favorites into trending headlines (boxes with thumbnails; like Bing). Any other further ticks down with the mouse wheel goes below like Bing, but Yahoo can decide what they want below.

    The trending headlines at the top should be replaced with Yahoo portals: Images, Videos,Yahoo.com, Answers, Mail, Weather.

    The settings should be a hamburger menu and one should be able to further narrow down what kind of Flickr photos they want. For example: I like plants and fungi pictures, BUT I also prefer for them to have dark environments/atmospheres. That would be…

  2. Background picture

    It would be nice to have the ability to choose from existing photos or upload a photo(s) and have just one background picture or random. The ability to choose is much more appealing.

  6. I am using search.yahoo.com a lot. Top right there's location and temp, central Greece 92º, 8 more to boil water...Celsius scale maybe?

    Because of the widespread adoption of the metric system, most countries worldwide – including non-metric Liberia and Burma – use Celsius as their official temperature scale. Only a few countries use Fahrenheit as their official scale: the United States, Belize, Palau, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands. Fahrenheit is still sometimes used in Canada, although Celsius is more common and is the official Canadian temperature scale.

  10. News portal/link does not show up; Nor does Answer portal

    Search.yahoo brings up these portals via the search bar, but the extension does not bring up these portals via search bar OR address bar. 😐

  11. Search Box User Experience Idea

    When one clicks on the search box and adds a letter: an acrylic drop-down box appears. Instead the whole surrounding area should be like that when one starts typing in the box.
