Yahoo! was simply a search engine in the past. Over the years, it gained immense popularity until Yahoo! was used by millions of people all over the world. Today, it offers a messenger service, e-mailing and high-speed Internet. It is also known for its home page, which offers an array of news clippings, videos and links that navigate users to other sections of Yahoo!
