A Fresh Look for Search

by Laurie Mann, SVP, Search

Whether you’re searching for that perfect summer vacation spot or a nearby Ethiopian restaurant, finding what you’re looking for should be fast and easy. And, we think that it can also be beautiful. Today we’re excited to introduce a new, modern design for web search in the U.S. that puts your results front and center.

When it comes to search, nothing should stand between you and your results. That’s why we’ve placed search results higher on the page. And thanks to some under-the-hood performance improvements, many of you will notice that the page also loads faster.

We’re also introducing a new navigation bar at the top of the page so you can easily browse other Yahoo! sites. Over time, we’ll be rolling out the navigation bar across more Yahoo! properties.

And, if you’re thinking that the new Yahoo! search results page looks familiar, there’s a good reason why - the design is consistent with our new Yahoo! homepage.

Over the coming months, you’ll see more from Yahoo! as we work to deliver a search experience that combines utility with beauty and gets you to your results faster. Today’s news is just our first step.
