+ - Yahoo Announces Open Search Platform

CHaN_316 writes: Yahoo is announcing that they're opening up their search platform. It will allow third-party developers to modify search results by adding images, deep links, and structured data. Anyone will be able to create their own modifications and share them with users. "For example, Yelp, one of the launch partners, will include a photo, review information and the address and phone number of the business [on the Yahoo search results page]." Users will be able to turn on/off these modified search results. The desired effect is similar to the popular GreaseMonkey plugin for Firefox. The screenshots of this looks pretty compelling. More info can be found at the Yahoo Search Blog.
