As most of you already know, Microsoft and Yahoo have been in talks over the past year of a possible buyout which has left a sour taste in the mouth of many executives and investors in regards to not being able to come to an agreement.
While Google stood in the sidelines watching, they have reached an agreement with Yahoo in regards to Yahoo’s paid search. Within two days of Google launching Chrome (Google’s new web browser,) Yahoo is urging users to upgrade to the new FireFox 3 at the top of Yahoo.com. It reads, “Yahoo recommends upgrading to the new, safer, faster Firefox 3.” By downloading this browser, Yahoo would be your default engine as FireFox is known for using Google as a default search engine.
How do you think this will affect the market share for IE?
