Different Yahoo Front Page on Firefox and Internet Explorer

I thought my eyes were playing tricks when I saw new professional Yahoo web design for the front page. But then it was the same Yahoo web design on my Firefox as before.

So I thought maybe the firefox browser cache was storing an older version of the webpage. But even after clearing all the browser cache and related information, the Yahoo page was same as before.

But on Internet explorer the Yahoo front page has indeed got a professional web design change done.
Yahoo IE

So it seems the Yahoo is showing a new redesign in Internet explorer only. It seems Firefox users will have to switch to IE to see this one! I recommend using the IE tab to view internet explorer in a Firefox tab. How is it appearing in Opera, Safari…
