Yahoo has redesigned its search page for those in the United States, claiming that the new look "puts your results front and center." Search results are now placed higher on the page, according to a Tumblr post on the visual makeover, and Yahoo is also promising faster performance thanks to some undisclosed under-the-hood improvements. The company has also brought the top navigation bar — which links to other Yahoo services — from the homepage to web search. The changes are admittedly small, but nonetheless important for Yahoo as it attempts to implement a shared and recognizable design language that "combines utility with beauty." The company has promised that today's changes are "just our first step" in continuing towards that goal.
