Google Search is finally making its way to Firefox! What’s up with the Mozilla Corporation? Why all of a sudden?
The Mozilla Corporation has recently come into an agreement with Google with a big move for Firefox.
The company has agreed to keep Google Search as its primary default search engine! The agreement is said to affect the browser for the next three years!
According to ZDNet, both companies have reached an agreement that is apparently beneficial for both parties.
Despite the leaked news, the official announcement about the deal is said to be expected later on in November.
The Mozilla Corporation themselves have also confirmed that the final announcement will yet be on November.
What’s going on with the partnership?
According to the organization, both parties are having an ongoing partnership. The agreement will make Google Search the primary search engine in numerous places around the world.
The organization also added that they have decided to extend their partnership and that the relationship is not changing.
The deal is estimated to be worth about $400 million all the way to $450 million per year once in effect.
The report actually came after the Mozilla Corporation announced its plans to lay off up to 250 people.
The announcement was made last week and was supposed to be part of the company’s restructuring plan for the better.
According to Mitchell Baker, the Mozilla Corporation CEO, the present economic conditions from the global pandemic have actually significantly hurt their revenue.
The CEO also stated that the corporation’s original pre-COVID plan is currently no longer workable in the current situation.

ZDNet, on the other hand, said in their report that the organization is actually financially sound.
The assurance was given despite the company’s plans to make drastic changes in its core business.
Baker also said in a certain blog post that in the long run, Mozilla Corporation’s goal is to be able to build new experiences that people want and love.
According to the CEO, the company aims to have better values and better characteristics instilled in their products.
Google’s recent spotlight
Recently, Google had been dealing with a couple of issues like the recent class-action lawsuit that paid Google+ users a total of $12 each.
The total amount of money that Google spent on this was $7.5 million and although this might seem like a small amount for the company, the contents of the class action suit are alarming.
The class-action suit has to do with something that lately, a lot of companies have been faulty with, security!
Google+ reportedly had to pay for the damages caused that were stated in the recent class-action suit.
The deal with Mozilla Corporation could be beneficial for Google in the consumer market especially since their recent fault.
With Google Search as a Firefox default, Google would have no problems dominating the market once again.
