yahoo mail beta

I've been using Yahoo Mail beta for a few weeks. The new features are certainly nice and user-friendly. Plus the introduction of tab browsing certainly increases the fluidity of moving around the email account. The added feature of rss feed certainly new to any email account. I can't remember there is rss feed in hotmail, msn or gmail account. Overall, the new yahoo mail seems like a browser within a browser to me.

Everything has its downside though. The beta version eat a lot of bandwidth. Probably due to high usage of java. I cannot access the beta version if my internet speed is slow. That means dial-up user probably cannot use the new version of yahoo mail. Hmm, wonder if the yahoo people can fix that or not....
