Nowadays Mozilla Firefox has now started to test Bing in FireFox and they are planning to make it a default browser, to replace Google because there is always been competition for the fastest and the safest web browser and search engine. Usually, many questions come into mind that it a test drive of these two companies or are they planning to go for a new technical strategy that can change the world.
At present, whenever you go any query to Firefox search bar, it automatically delivers to it Google but now Firefox is slowly transferring its default browser search towards the Microsoft Bing for a small number of users. It also looks likes Mozilla Firefox is conducting research on it that the user will accept the new default browser as a search engine.
Mozilla Firefox Making Microsoft Bing As A Default Web Browser
There was also a time when Mozilla Firefox was one of the popular web browsers but now Google has taken the most of control of internet surfing towards itself and it has also surpassed Mozilla Firefox. Back in the past day’s Firefox chooses Google as its default web browser. In the most recent deal with Google and Firefox, it was estimated that it would be a $400 to $500 per year agreement. This is was for Google to become the default web browser for Mozilla Firefox until 2021. But now Mozilla Firefox replaced Google with Microsoft Bing as its default browser for a couple of users.
Now it’s like Firefox is looking ahead for some other best possible solutions when the deal is again renegotiating within two years and they are also testing to switch it to BIng to make it the default browser.
The company also give the statement on 6 September 2021 that it will only affect 1% of the desktop users and it will continue for a couple of months and they are likely to wrap till the beginning of the next coming January.
The supporting website of Mozilla Firefox – SUMO(SupportMorzilla.Org) where they test the Mozilla certain case studies as a part to optimize the firefox experiment. There always has been transparency in Mozilla Firefox for browser option and that its setting can be set in Windows or the browser team has apparently tried to hide participant facing of Microsoft Bing.
But if the user wants to see the 1% of the testing bed then they will have to visit the about: studies in the Firefox address bar and it will automatically see that they have enrolled on it.
The user can go back again to their search engine option in Mozilla Firefox or if they want to revert back to Google as their main search engine and they can easily do it.
This type of experiment is extremely interesting because Firefox is considering Google to deal with it because Google has become increasingly important for firefox development.
It is also possible that Mozilla is preparing to have a renegotiation with Google again and contrary to some other tech companies has been done through in the upcoming 2023. Perhaps they are also looking for another way to contact Microsoft Bing to make it a default browser having a partnership with them.
