Yahoo launches the confusingly titled Alpha (Beta) service


Yahoo! has launched an interesting new search service called Alpha (currently in beta!!). The services generates results pages with modules for Flickr, YouTube and other web services. Users can log in with their Yahoo Accounts and customize the modules. The interface is quite clean – a definite plus.

It is supposed to compete with Google’s Searchmash, which I find to offer a slightly better experience. (Compare screenshot of Yahoo! Alpha on top with Google Searchmash on bottom).
