Since Yahoo has different redirects for the same URL, you can get the same page in different searches and your browser will never let you know that you've already been there. So if the titles start to look similar, a quick glance down at the displayed URL isn't going to be as much of a clue anymore. That could be a real problem if your looking for something covered extensively on a site like Digg.

[edit reason] examplified URL. Example.com is for examples. ;) [/edit]
As for Yahoo using a redirect and not being able to tell if I've visited that site or not, I use a Greasemonkey script to strip out the redirect for that exact reason. It's called Yahoo! Redirect Remover if you want to search for it. Very handy at times.
(I just took a look to make sure the script is still available, there's 1 version that works and another that doesn't at the script archive, so read the user comments to find the right one if you decide to try it.)
Oh and thanks for the script recommendation. Yahoo's redirect system is very annoying.
