Check out the similarity between the Yahoo search page
and the main Google search page
. I don't think that I had ever seen that page on Yahoo before (I wandered over to it because SBC/Yahoo changed (messed up) my normal My Yahoo page that I use to track news stories and weather, and as a gateway to yellow pages and maps). I don't actually think that this is coincidental, though. Anyone know who had this page style first? I would say Google, but that is most likely just because I saw their version first (years ago).
And I'm switching to Google Maps, which is much cooler and works better.
