Does anybody noticed that since 12.45 CET Yahoo's index shows Google results?

It depends from where you are searching. I use a proxy service (testing) and so I get different results for the same search term. This change in yahoo SERPS started yesterday and I hope that it is only a test.

Is there a 'Search results provided by Google' at the bottom of the pages you say are Google? I'm not aware of any serps provided by them without their tagline somewhere on the page.

I think they are just very similar serp's, not necessarily the same. How far down have you checked?

Nothing new to add, but posting to confirm the same behaviour.

I saw a few posts elsewhere about this. The Google results were only displayed on selected machines and they reverted to Yahoo results after cookies were cleared.

What I saw was definately different than normal Yahoo but definately not the same as Google. I personally hope they stick. I saw some missing home pages show up.
