A Newly Renewed Search Deal Between Google and Mozilla community

A newly renewed agreement has taken place between two company Google Inc and Mozilla Community; in the agreement it has been declared that Google will be affixed as the default search provider within the Mozilla Firefox browser, and it will be in effect for a minimum three years. Earlier Mozilla was integrated with Bing search engine which generally often caused difficulties to the Mozilla browser users.

This problem has been resolved by making a deal with Google search engine, and it has come in focus that terms and condition of the deal are subject to traditional confidentiality requirements. Till now, it is not clear that whether the company will continue to offer this release; only it is disclosed that the deal will be in effect for next three years more. Anyway the Mozilla browser users need not to be worried because this deal is extended for another three years.

Although this contract has been made before, but this time it has been renewed for the minimum of next three years about three weeks after the previous contract expired. No doubt, this search giant, i.e. Google has finalized the deal on the cost of high rate, but none of these companies have disclosed their terms of agreement. The senior Vice President of Search giant, Alan Eustace, has stated that Mozilla has been a valuable partner to Google over the years and the two company will continue this partnership in the coming future.

The CEO of Mozilla, Gary Kovacs, has gladly announced that under this multi-year agreement, Google Search will continue to be the default search provider for hundreds of millions of Firefox users around the world. Another important statement made by Matt Cutts, Google’s head of spam, that “Mozilla is an important, independent voice in the web space and thus Google is feeling proud to work with this company” has given some breathing room to the Mozilla community. The agreement made between the two company really holds a great importance for the Mozilla community which can be easily felt by the statement that previous year  it has earned 98% of its revenue from search royalties which had been incorporated by Google giant.
