Yandex (yandex.com) is a search engine. Yandex was founded by Elena Kolmanovskaya, Ilya Segalovich, and Arkady Volozh. It was Segalovich who thought of the name “Yandex.” In 2023, Kolmanovskaya remains the chief editor of Yandex. Volozh is a well-known Russian billionaire.

DESCRIPTION

The homepage of yandex.com had a large search box in the middle above the fold. There was little color on the page; it seemed built for speed. Above the search box were six icons for images, video, maps, translate, weather, and mail. It also showed the weather beneath the search box on the left side. There was no chance to scroll below the fold. 4/17/2024
