Google vs Yahoo

I find this site has an awesome tool to compare the search result between Google and Yahoo. Type anything you want to search and see how many dots each has as well as how it was compare. I am quite lost though in how the mechanism work, since it didn't explain much about it.

Then, I saw this site where it compares both interface designs. Very detail.

As Google and Yahoo! continue their volley of product offerings, I thought it would be useful to compare the interface design solutions each company employed to solve similar user needs. In other words: how does Yahoo’s version of a product (Maps, Local Search, Image Search, etc.) compare to Google’s? Though some product offerings are virtually indistinguishable (Web Search, Image Search), others differ significantly (Groups, Product Search).

Below is a summary of comparison I did after reading from Sorry, I forgot to jot down the link from the site.
