It looks like the most significant changes are coming to Yahoo Mail this fall — it’s supposed to be faster, with an improved interface, as well as stronger integration with social networks and other Web services.
Senior Product Manager Stephanie Shum gave me a short demo of the new service, which you can see in the video above.
