Web analytics firm Netcraft announced last week that search engine giant Yahoo's websites experienced brief performance problems early Friday.
The problems ranged in varying degrees, depending on the location of the user. Since Yahoo is one of the world's busiest websites, the outages were noted by Internet Storm Center and news outlets.
The yahoo.com home page was inaccessible for several hours from Netcraft's London, England monitoring station, responding more slowly than usual from several locations in the US.
Yahoo search seemed to experience lengthier availability problems than the home page and other Yahoo services.
