Yahoo Search allowing users to customize UI of results

Quick write-up available at ReadWriteWeb. Not going to change the search game, but an interesting effort to improve the UI of search results (not the ranking, just the UI). The real question is how many people are going to install these customizations…my guess is a tiny fraction of people unless a killer app comes along (adding the yelp logo to the results for local searches is not a killer app and not worth the effort in my mind). This is just a start and it is open, so I hope to see this grow. I know we could improve the search results for sports players with content from www.playersearch.com.

Good coverage at TechCrunch as well. Same analysis…a lot of potential, but not there yet.
