    Could they ditch the Yahoo login too whilst they're at it?
  5. It would be interesting to see if that happens. You can check this on those "Yahoo Market Share" graphs.

    Yahoo tends to be around 10%, Google at around 66%, Bing 15%. It depends on which country.I think Yahoo's share went down a bit last year.

    Looks like Yahoo thinks doing like google will be like what google did. Remember them forcing you to have a google account for youtube? Youtube is big enough that they didn't have a significant hit, but Yahoo isn't as big. I personally think they will lose a lot of people this way.
