A new test page for Yahoo Search has been spotted that looks almost identical to Google’s search user interface. Is this sign of Yahoo recognizing Google’s success and launching a new search results design site wide?
There’s no mistake that Yahoo Search has relied heavily on Google’s design for its new user interface. From interaction to color scheme to layout, the whole page looks like a complete copy of Google’s SERP design.

Though leaving much to the imagination, Yahoo Search is clearly working to make its user interface more interactive, concise, and easy-to-use. We’re excited to see what progress Yahoo Search makes in designing a new search user experience and what changes will make this experience more unique to its brand. Look out for changes, Yahoo’s new search user interface may launch sooner than you think!
