Yahoo vs. Google: An Evolutionary Timeline MIT's John Maeda has delved deep into the Internet Archive to create a fascinating year-by-year, side-by-side comparison of the home page layouts of Yahoo and Google.

Same message as this one.

Exactly. BTW, Prof. John Maeda 16 (-3) Laws of Simplicity are good and interesting reading.

“The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.” - Michael Porter

BTW: Beside the portal page, Yahoo also has a (useful) search page: http://search.yahoo.com/

And I think this is a little comparing apples and oranges. Yahoo's search page is a lot simpler than the main portal. Obviously, it supports entirely different purposes.

Maybe it would have been fair to compare news.google.com with www.yahoo.com and www.google.com with search.yahoo.com.

But then the difference wouldn't have been so striking, of course.

Ragnar Schierholz, 2006-03-02

That is not necessarily the case. Yahoo always tried to be a portal, while Google stayed simple. Now Yahoo has copied Google, and Google tries to build more elaborate stuff. It remains to be seen whether that works.
