Does www.google.com (http://www.google.com) look different to anyone? If I didn't know any better, I'd say they've had a makeover.

I can't see any difference. Probably because it automatically loads http://www.google.com.gr. What am I supposed to see?

It definately looked a little "lighter" to me... even the search pages look more slimline. I like it.

No. I don't think Yahoo! uses Google anymore. They certainly used too, and then Yahoo! bought Overture and implemented its technology into its own engine. I read a press release on Google shortly after signing off earlier today which detailed the changes. They've also made some changes to their Froogle shopping service.

There is an article on The Register about Yahoo! and Google parting company. Google still own the major share of the search market. Personally, I prefer Google over Yahoo! without any shadow of a doubt.

Found the article I referenced above: "Yahoo! will ditch Google as its main search engine "perhaps as early as the first quarter", the WSJ reports. The paper's sources are unnamed marketing outfits who says they have been briefed on the switch by Yahoo! This will come as little surprise to anyone. The only question was when the contractual agreements between the two companies would end.

Yahoo! is a shareholder in privately-held Google, but it owns its own search engine technology, courtesy of the acquisitions of Inktomi and the consumer business of FAST. It also owns the world's biggest paid-for search listings business, Overture. All three were bought over the last year or so. Google is becoming a serious rival to Yahoo!, as a portal in its own right, and as the purveyor of Adwords, Overture's most formidable competitor by far."
