Google to pull the plug on Firefox?

/ 7 years ago

Google’s Chrome browser has taken the world by storm. In just 3 years shooting up to 25%+ market share and by some measures it has already overtaken Firefox, Internet Explorer’s biggest rival for the past decade. However, in a deal many people probably do not know about Google actually gives Mozilla 84% of its revenue in a search deal which was due to expire at the end of November. Speculation exists that Google will end the deal in order to eliminate the competition.

Another reason why this is so problematic for Firefox is that they are losing their corporate market share. The new accelerated development schedule has alienated enterprise customers who can’t have too many updates. Firefox has been declining by around 3-5% in the past year with Chrome taking most of this displaced market share. Although some say Google have already dismissed this claim as ending the deal which is profitable for both parties would result in Firefox seeking refuge with other search engines like Yahoo or Microsoft’s Bing.
