AJAX Powered Yahoo Mail Beta! Try IT!

Hi CEans!

Yahoo is still generating waiting list for Yahoo Mail Beta. But here we present a simple way to enable it yourself - try following steps:
  • Log in to your Yahoo Mail.
  • Go to Options-> Account information (left pane)
  • Go to Member Information -> General Preferences -> Preferred Content
  • Select Yahoo United Kingdom
  • Click on 'Finished' button
  • Login to Yahoo Mail again
  • Now you should see 'Try Yahoo Beta' page. Click on the appropriate button.
  • Enjoy the Beta
Let me know if it works.

Yahoo is doing a great job with AJAX technology (probably trying to stop its users from switching to Gmail 😁 ) Feel free to discuss Yahoo Mail Beta here.

about AJAX!

Okay Crazyboy, you caught me.

I'll write the basics of AJAX so that it makes sense to everyone πŸ˜‰

AJAX is a short for "Asynchronous JavaScript And XML". Its a web development technique used mainly for interactive web applications. AJAX makes web site more interactive, fast, reliable and reduce server load.

Here's how it happens. Typically, if you are working on a component of webpage, say filling up a form and submitting the information, the whole web page needs to be refreshed after data submission. This loads the server unnecessarily. But with AJAX, only the component you are working on can communicate & interact with the server to exchange data in small packets.

This typically reduces the server load. If you want to feel ajax, you can do so on our CE forum 😁 . When you post something and then want to edit it, just click on 'edit' button. a small window opens up! that's AJAX in action! Edit and save the changes! Note that the whole page does not get refreshed.

Give it a try ! 😁

just a question ...??/
IS forum Based on AJAX fully...i dont think so...
because what i know that ....or observed that, "the page does refreshed only in case we Edit a post..." except that it doesn't
Can you pour some more light on that...
Or can you give som esite ....based on Ajax only...

Its a damn good technology.....in which on screen
--a web page....is devided in frames and Panes and that panes and frames refreshed only inspite of the whole page....
good conecpt.

throwing light

Well, our CE forum is not completely AJAX powered. You can see AJAX in action when you click on 'edit' button to edit the post. When you make the changes, and click 'save' button, the page does not get refreshed but the changes are saved to the post.

Gmail is an excellent example of AJAX. Yahoo Mail Beta is AJAX powered. Zimbra ( www.zimbra.com ) has come up with AJAX based mailing system. Well, if you want you can go to www.crazyengineers.com/me and comment in the 'shoutbox'. The comment appears in the shoutbox without refreshing the page. πŸ˜‰

AJAX is cool & the 'in' thing these days. Do we have anyone who can give us more detail?

Any new experiences with the Yahoo Mail Beta?

I guess people are really happy with their Gmail accounts. Btw, did you try out the calendar & 'pictures' feature of gmail? Its cool.

I think its high time that Yahoo integrates Yahoo Messenger with Yahoo mail accounts. Say what?

That's Good. Now do post your experiences with the AJAX enabled Yahoo Mail. πŸ˜€

Do you think it will take over Gmail ?

I've been using yahoo beta for quite some time and I am really happy with it. I bet my dollar to YMB. Gmail gets a point for keeping it clean and simple but you should see the YMB interface. Nice work with colors.

Calendar needs to be ajax enabled too. I'm waiting for it.

I am still sticking with GMail. YMB is AJAX powered and all that, but what about Spam filtering ??

GMail is intelligent enough to remove all the spam from your inbox. With YMB I am spammed atleast 3-4 spams per day and to delete it I have to select it and delete them. On selecting, I have to open a spam mail :-(. Is there an alternative to this?

Hi CEans,
I still go for Gmail. I have been using Yahoo beta mail from two months.Since then I have a question in my mind. What is the difference between Rediff mail and Yahoo Beta mail (both look similar)?

Im still sticking to Gmail! Its really fast and easy access, takes about 5 seconds from opening the Firefox browserπŸ˜€

And on top of the speed, its got these cool filtering functions. And the calender and spreadsheet is helpful too. In Yahoo and MSN these might be available but I prefer gmail because mainly of its easy access!

Rock on!!😁
