Steve Bryant from the Google Watch blog has posted a funny, but well thought, mock-up of what Google’s start page would look like if Yahoo designed it. Well, I can’t say that the result is surprising:
What’s funny about this image, is that Google allows you to create a custom homepage that may end up looking a bit similar to the image above, but, it still looks better, and cleaner. Perhaps Yahoo should take this as a small wake up call and start thinking about a more serious makeover to their homepage. If it remains as bloated as it currently is I certainly won’t be using it for a long time. Even their (just) search page which supposedly, should be a non-brainer for designers is more bloated than Google’s.
