Google, Mozilla Extend Firefox Search Deal

Mozilla and Google have signed a new deal to keep the Internet search giant’s engine as the default search tool in Firefox. The deal, which was announced later on Tuesday, extends the current agreement for at least three more years.

We’re pleased to announce that we have negotiated a significant and mutually beneficial revenue agreement with Google,” the Mozilla team said. “This new agreement extends our long-term search relationship with Google for at least three additional years.”

The deal means Google will still be the default home page for Firefox users, and the default search engine. The companies didn’t share any details, although it’s no secret that the two previously shared revenue from search ads. Presumably, the new deal maintains that agreement.

Google’s Senior Vice President of Search Alan Eustace added, “Mozilla has been a valuable partner to Google over the years and we look forward to continuing this great partnership in the years to come.”
