They're talking about all of Yahoo and Google's sites, not just search. I was on Flickr last night and was impressed with it's revamped UI. I felt good that I was able to intuitively do what I wanted to do, without having to hunt and click around like I used to.

Mayer noted that Yahoo page views were rising after more than a year of declines, citing recently refreshed versions of Yahoo mail, weather, sports, news and Tumblr, both on desktop and mobile.

The revamped Yahoo mail app for tablets, for instance, brought a 120% increase in daily active Yahoo mail users, according to the company.

Mayer was behind the clean design of the Google search interface. Now it has all the aesthetic appeal of merchant site's exit/mugging page. Perhaps people are getting fed up with Google's site design?
