Recently there have been some stories about Google making changes to their search results page appearance and I have not paid too much attention to them. However, this morning I was doing a search in both Bing and Google and had a bit of Déjà vu.

So I made screenshots of each search engines results page and then understood where that I have seen this before feeling was coming from.

Check out the screenshots:

Now maybe this is inadvertent and not a big deal but it would not be the first time that Google copied off of Bing.  Remember when Google added the background picture to their main page?  The feature is still there but is now a user option to have as the default.

So what do you think is this just a coincidence?
