    from seeking alpha

    Yahoo (YHOO -0.9%) CEO struck a secret truce with in April 2015 with Jeffrey Smith's Starboard Value in which she promised to trim costs, and Smith, in return, agreed to withdraw his board nominees.via Douglas Macmillan at WSJTrouble is, Yahoo's expenses ballooned from there, including $20M for the rights for the NFL's first streaming-only game, and more than $160M for the purchase of Polyvore (triple what Yahoo's top dealmaker figured it was worth).In the first two quarters after the agreement, Yahoo's total expenses rose an average of 21% vs. 6% less than a year earlier.It wasn't an easy job to begin with, but Mayer made things tougher by doubling down on turnaround efforts and clinging to the idea she was going to save Yahoo.Smith's frustration eventually boiled over into a revolt beginning in November, and ending with Starboard taking nearly half of Yahoo's board seats. Final bids are expected soon on a sale of the company's core operations.

    Hey pebble, i moved all the sites that I visit regularly to GOOGLE, my speed has increased by a factor of 10.

    May i suggest you do the same; at least for a test, copy and paste the info on your MSFT browser to your GOOG browser.

    If you don't have a GOOG browser, install one; it is free
