There were times when Yahoo was the place to visit to search anything over the internet. And then Google came along. Things might change once again for Yahoo with its recent partnership with FireFox under which Yahoo will be set as the default search for users in USA.
Both companies have recently announce a five year deal under which Yahoo will be the web browser’s default search engine, replacing Google which has been since 2004. Mozilla says that it is part of its strategy to provide a more local experience to its users. From now on the default search engine will vary region-wise though the users will have an option to switch to another search engine if they wish. Under this new plan, Yahoo will be default search engine for United States, Yandex Search for Russia and Baidu for China.
