Difference Between Yahoo and Google

yahoo-googleYahoo vs Google

Yahoo and Google are two sites that are competing to provide a wide variety of services to users. Today, they have begun to diversify into other services. You can easily distinguish between the two as soon as you enter their respective home pages. Google is, first and foremost, a search engine and it has been the most dominant search engine for a substantially long time. It thrives on its simplistic format and its ability to find what the users are searching for. Yahoo has moved from being a normal search engine into a web portal. As soon as you enter their site, you are flooded with all of the most recent news in current events, entertainment, sports, and a whole lot more.

Both also offers free services to their users via a unified login that lets you access all the other pages. Common to both is the free web email that their users can take advantage of. Yahoo also has another very popular product called Yahoo Messenger. This application lets people communicate to their family and friends or even talk, just like Skype. Google has been developing their own messaging application called Google Talk which is beginning to gain popularity.

Google has begun to venture into a lot of other services that are not quite within the usual trend. They have opened Google Docs which is a service that lets users do their common office tasks online. Word processing or spreadsheets are done within the browser and the resulting files are also saved inside Google’s servers. This has the advantage of being accessible anywhere and being able to share it with multiple users at the same time.

Google has also been diving into consumer software and developed their own web browser called Chrome. They have even started on an OS that works on a cloud computing structure for use in computers. The latest Google product that has been introduced in the market is the Google OS for smart phones named Android. It has been undergoing some changes and some users think that it can be an excellent alternative to the Windows Mobile.

3. Google has begun offering more advanced capabilities like Google Docs which Yahoo doesn’t have
4. Google is developing their own browser and even operating systems for PC and smart phones
