Mozilla, Google break up. Yahoo is new default search engine

According to The Mozilla Blog by Chris Beard CEO of Mozilla, Mozilla's 10-year default search relationship with Google is coming to an end.

Google search can still be accessed easily from Firefox. Bing is a Microsoft technology.

In the past, Mozilla refused to disclose the deal with Google.
