Similarities Between New Google Search Interface and Yahoo Search

We told you about the new Google Search interface recently, along with instructions on how to access new Google Search. However, we just spotted something that might be of interest in the new search interface from Google.

It is mildly similar to the current Search. I say mildly, since there are certain similarities like the search box, font weights and the buttons. However, they are not exactly the same, but it looks like they have been derived from Yahoo Search.

Take a look at the screenshots above and decide for yourself whether or not you see similarities between them. An interesting thing is that this is not the first time that Google has copied something from Yahoo. I remember an instance, but cannot find the link for it, it was related to promoting custom builds of IE7 and the Google designer had copied the design over from Yahoo.

What do you think? Let us know through your comments.
