Mozilla Extends Search Partnership with Google

Mozilla known for developing a popular web browser, Firefox, has recently announced that it has extended its search partnership with Google for at least three more years.

Under the refreshed terms of the agreement, Mozilla’s web browser, Firefox, will continue to have Google as its default search provider.

However, both the companies don’t reveal the financial terms of the renewed agreement.

Candidly, the Google search deal has been a vital element of income for the developer of Firefox – generating around 84% of Mozilla’s total $121.1 million revenue in the year 2010.

In November 2011, the actual deal between Google and Mozilla expired, while back in October Mozilla released its Firefox with Bing, forcing many to think as it might switch to Bing as its default search provider after the agreement with Google expired.

However, the renewal of the agreement between Google and Mozilla shatters all those speculations. The fresh deal between Google and Mozilla also points out that the both the companies are least concerned of their enmity against each other regarding their web browsers – Firefox and Chrome. Despite being signing a new deal, both companies are trying their best to succeed against each on browser war.
