Google and Mozilla are quite close, with both joined in a number of agreements, despite both working on their own browsers. It would seem that the partnership also tends to influence the Mozilla team which has now decided to make Google the default search engine for Firefox 14 which will be released in Russia. In the earlier version of the browser, Yandex was the default search engine.


Yandex is the most popular search engine in Russia. In the earlier versions of Firefox, Yandex has been the default search engine since most Russians know it well and tend to prefer it over other search engines.

This, however, has changed now. Yandex is no longer the default search engine in Firefox 14. Rather, the crown has gone to Google. However, Yandex seems quite unaffected by the decision and has said that the move by Mozilla is going to have a negligible affect on its traffic and revenue.

However, Russian users who prefer Yandex to Google can still lay their hands on a customized version of Firefox 14 with Yandex at its heart. Naturally, this version has come into existence due to an agreement between Mozilla and Yandex.

According to Yandex, “This customized version of the Firefox browser was developed under Yandex’s arrangements with Mozilla and includes Yandex as the default search service. With the release of the new version of Firefox, Yandex will remain among the search options available to users of Firefox’s generic browser but will no longer be the default search provider. As with prior versions of Firefox, users will be able to change the default search provider if they desire.”
