Google’s IE7 Splash Page

Google Blatantly Copies Yahoo!?: While I know that Jeremy is not a huge Google fan to start with, I have to agree with him that this is insanely blatant. So blatant, in fact, that I’m left thinking there’s more to the story.

Back when IE7 launched, Yahoo! created a customized version and began to market it to our existing IE users. […] Today it seems that Google has similar intentions. So similar, that they decided to basically copy our page and slightly Googlify it. If you look, the design, layout, and most of the text are the same!

  1. Actually, I am a bit Google fan. I just happen to work for a competitor. :-)

    I’ve written quite a bit about how much I like and use some of their stuff (notably Gmail). Also note the default search in my browser screenshots…
