I use Yahoo to read the news. That's it. I don't use it to..."Yahooooooo!".

I know a significant amount of people who still use Yahoo! Most have it as their start page, and as mentioned earlier, the news headlines. Since the browsers have search blanks in the top righthand corner now (a big mistake for ie 9 to eliminate this, IMO, as, while I realize you can now search from the address bar, many users will not realize this and be disappointed the search blank went away... which will also probably increase the amount of already too increased quantity of toolbar helper toolbars installed in browsers

I take it you don't use chrome. IE9 is trying to get the sleek, minimalistic look and feel of Chrome. Yet when I tested out IE9 it seemed ugly to me.
