Yes I am with you - there is a real danger of Google getting too powerful, and Yahoo have the chance to provide the right kind of balance.
Although I say balance - Google has about 43 percent to Yahoos 28 percent the last I looked.
I for one hope that Yahoo stays independant, if Microsoft take them on, all the nice innovation with toolkits that work in every browser will die quickly.
I think with the partnership between Yahoo and MSN, Google will have some competition their hands and balance out market share of search a lot better. Google is very powerful, nothing can stop that now, its the huge beast in the room but its good to see Yahoo and MSN are still in the race. Yahoo is still big for search but it will become a huge content portal for finance, sports, etc having that search option that is powered by Bing, owned by MSN.
