Mozilla Firefox on Google Homepage
According to TopRank, Google is promoting the spreading of Firefox to its users on the Google Homepage. Apparently if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer and visit Google, you may be served a message which states Firefox with Google Toolbar: tabbed browsing, safer surfing”.
Firefox confirms the siting on the SpreadFirefox.com site : “Thanks to the marketing team at Google, Firefox is the first third party product to be featured on Google’s homepage. For now, only IE users in the US will see the promo.”
Nice browser specific targeting there Google.
TwisterMC of TopRank (I think his real name may be Thomas) also supplies this screen capture of the Firefox promotion on Google:
So, Firefox is now the first third party to be promoted on Google.com’s homepage and along with an accompanying graphic toolbar image. Looks like Google and Mozilla are forging a stronger relationship by the day – perhaps in anticipation to the full service launch of Live Windows?
