Mozilla ends Google default search. Yahoo is the new default

Postby Antony » Thu 20 Nov, 2014 2:50 am

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.
Instead Mozilla has stuck a new partnership with Yahoo to make its Bing-powered search engine the default in USA and some other regions.

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.
