So we've seen copycats and similarities floating around the internets before. Missing vowels in site names , reflections, gradient backgrounds, rounded corners. You name it we've seen it. What we haven't seen in a while is a copycat page design on this scale. AOL's new Beta page looks mighty familiar. So familiar, one of our readers sent us a tip, pointing out that it looks dangerously like Yahoo's home page . The real question here, is how does a company with so much money to throw around skimp on something as important as page design?

Yahoo's homepage . AOL's new Beta page . You be the judge

Update: Added animated comparison GIF.
