Bloomberg Quint: Google Pays to Put Search Back on Firefox Browser in U.S.

Bloomberg Quint: Google Pays to Put Search Back on Firefox Browser in U.S.. “In a blog post, Mozilla said Firefox’s default search engine will be Google in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The agreement recalls a similar, older deal that was scuttled when Firefox and Google’s Chrome web browser became bitter rivals. Three years ago, Mozilla switched from Google to Yahoo! Inc. as the default Firefox search provider in the U.S. after Yahoo agreed to pay more than $300 million a year over five years — more than Google was willing to pay.” This ain’t good for Yahoo.
