Yahoo has announced this week that it is preparing to shut down a number of services that it provides any clean out that will help the struggling search engine to focus on what’s next within its development under the new guidance of CEO Marissa Mayer.
Yahoo services that will be getting the chop include Yahoo Axis, Browser Plus, Citizen Sports, Webplayer, FoxyTunes, RSS Alerts and old school search engine AltaVista to name just a few.
Yahoo explains “Earlier this year, we announced an ongoing effort to sharpen our focus and deliver experiences that enhance your daily lives. As part of that, today we’re shutting down a few products so we can continue to focus on creating beautiful products that are essential to you every day.”
