Yahoo! US web search gets a 'modern' design

Yahoo! has dumped the older design of its web search in the United States, for a new, modern design - a post on Tumblr with an accompanying GIF image reveals.

The new design, Yahoo! claims, puts relevant results front and center, and is consistent with their new homepage. In addition to a new design, Yahoo! also claims to have fed it some under-the-hood performance improvements that enables the pages to load faster.

The modern design is also inclusive of a new navigation bar at the top of the page, allowing users to easily look through other Yahoo! sites. Gradually, Yahoo! will be rolling out the navigation bar across more of their properties. "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," Laurie Mann, SVP, Search adds.

Looks like Yahoo!'s in the midst of its redesigning exercise, since it killed its classic mail design for a fresh version only a couple of days ago. The mail service will not let you access the older interface in your inboxes anymore. The redesigned inbox unveiled by Yahoo! in December will now be made available in all user inboxes. The redesigned mail client was introduced back in December last year. It features a cleaner, neater interface that is common to the web and mobile versions of Yahoo! mail.

While there is absolutely no word on whether the new design will reach Yahoo! users elsewhere in the world, the waiting game officially begins.
