Goodbye! Yahoo! News!

After more than 10 years of being the first place I go to on the Web each morning, I've finally removed Yahoo News from the bookmarks on my startpage.  Every time Yahoo redoes the page and makes it more Web 2.0ish it seems to work less well on my Chromium browser.  (I'm not all that impressed with Chromium either but I have limited choices on Linux.)

As an aside, there is a pattern here: Yahoo redid Yahoo mail, and made it no longer work with my preferred Opera browser.  Because of this I had to switch to Chromium browser.  Now they redid the News page and it only half works with Chromium. Any more changes from Yahoo and I won't be able to visit them at all!

Anyway, does anyone have a replacement general news page they like?  I might try CNN or Bing's News page.
