The Evolution of a Web Search Engine UI - Infoseek

1999 - Personalization became a high priority (news, stocks, and weather, oh my!)

1998 - Infoseek added more content and entered the age of the portal (a la Excite and others)

1997 - Browsable directory links were added to the home page, making categorized sites more easily discoverable by the less-experienced internet user (a la Yahoo)

1996 - The Infoseek search engine began as just a search box (a la Alta Vista at that time, and more recently, Google)

The process behind one of the many re-design efforts was captured in this article that was published in the Web Review journal (currently Dr. Dobbs) on 5/27/97 - "Back to the Drawing Board - The Infoseek Redesign: A Study in Give-and-Take"
