New Yahoo Search

And then following on from the post a couple of days ago we now get to have a look at Yahoo’s entry into the fray.

Well, on the surface it’s pretty clean and nicely laid out. Not stunning, but then for this kind of application that’s a non-issue. Search results are good and pretty timely, not unsurprising seen as Google supply the search index (what a tangled www we weave).

But jesus! The underlying code is a real tag-soup. No Doctype, nested tables, font tags, spacer tags. Yeuch!! I hope they’re gonna do some spring cleaning before this thing goes live.
