Google's prime objective is looking out for Google and that means that it is host-agnostic.
Google and Yahoo aren't 10-year-olds on the playground.
But literally, aren't Yahoo & Google around 10?
After some research, Yahoo is a bit older. Yahoo was launched in 1994. That makes them 11. Google just turned 9; its launch year was 1996.
