Yahoo has been pushing hard to be people's default search engine on every device. Before it can make that happen, though, the company knows its product must be improved drastically. As part of these efforts, Yahoo Search is getting an overhaul on mobile, designed to put relevant results information front and center. For example, if you're looking for sushi in Seattle, you now have the option to get directions to any restaurant, as well as read reviews and make reservations -- so long as you're in the US. It's obvious that Yahoo took a cue from Google with these features, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Engadget’s parent company, Verizon, now owns Yahoo. Engadget remains editorially independent.
