Let The Default Search Engines Battle Begin


Recently Google started displaying default search engine property switching messages within their search results trying to gain back some of the lost users after Firefox’s new update defaulted to Yahoo. Now Yahoo is doing the same for Firefox users who immediately switched back to Google when they saw a purple news and search page appear after the installation or upgrade to the new version. Yahoo claims they are “the preferred search engine for Firefox” and the message to switch back immediately pops down as an alert, if you are using any other default search engine including DuckDuckGo and Bing. I wonder what has changed within the search engine now making it it the preferred one for Firefox. Wouldn't Bing work just fine too since Yahoo and Bing's search deal?
