Yahoo nips and tucks its search with Google-y redesign

Search got a whole new swagger

Pop on over to Yahoo search today and you might notice it looks a tad different.

The folks at the 'hoo have rolled out a "new, modern design" for web search, throwing search results closer to the top, tightening up the font, implementing faster load times and introducing a new navigation bar that will soon make its way to other Yahoo properties.

While Yahoo says the redesign is consistent with its new homepage look, observant users will notice it also has a Google-esque touch. Not that that's a bad thing.
