Shout out to the small share of you who, like me, are nonetheless utilizing Firefox every day. Additionally, do not be alarmed in case your browser searches all of the sudden begin pinging Bing as an alternative of Google, your browser hasn’t been hijacked by malware. As a substitute, you are a part of a research Mozilla is conducting, to see if Firefox customers will embrace a change to the default search engine.

Mozilla’s search experiment went reside round two and a half weeks in the past, however has largely gone unnoticed till now. Usually that will be shocking, on condition that the default search is a core a part of the searching expertise, but it surely solely went reside to 1% of desktop customers.

In response to StatCounter, Firefox’s share of the desktop browser house is a number of ticks over 8%, placing it behind Edge (8.84%), Safari (9.99%), and Chrome (a whopping 66.94%). And its total share throughout all platforms is 3.54%.

On the desktop, that works out to lower than one out of each ten customers who make use of Firefox. After which out of that group, simply 1% have been involuntarily recruited to take part on this research.

The latest consideration prompted Mozilla to place out an announcement, explaining that Firefox research are a typical incidence because it goals to enhance the browser.

“As part of optimizing the Firefox expertise, Firefox commonly runs research. Firefox is at the moment operating a research which will trigger some customers to note that their default search engine has modified,” Mozilla mentioned.

On the floor, this may increasingly look like a minor factor, however switching the default search engine is definitely an enormous deal. Google has traditionally paid huge bucks to Mozilla to make use of its search—ZDNet reported in August 2020 that Google agreed to increase its search settlement for 3 years, and is estimated to be paying the browser maker round $400 million to $450 million per yr. So it is within the neighborhood of a $1.2 billion extension.

That deal will expire in 2023, after which Mozilla might look to re-up with Google, or go in a distinct path. The latter isn’t unprecedented. Again in November 2014, Mozilla selected Yahoo as its foremost search accomplice in a deal value $375 million per yr. Nevertheless, after Verizon acquired Yahoo in 2017, Mozilla took benefit of a clause in its contract to terminate the settlement, and it went again to Google.

When Yahoo grew to become the default search on the finish of 2014, it held round a 4% share of the search market, if sticking with StatCounter’s figures. Compared, Bing is at the moment at 2.48% throughout all platforms, and 6.54% on the desktop.

I nonetheless suppose kicking Google the curb can be a dangerous transfer, however I suppose if Microsoft got here in on the proper supply, Mozilla can be prepared to do it. On the very least, it’s exploring the concept with this research, which “will final into 2022.”

Mozilla additionally makes it clear that customers who’ve had their search modified to Bing and wish to return to Google (or a distinct search) can achieve this. The video directions it hyperlinks to are outdated, although.

To really change the default search, go into Settings (click on the three horizontal bars within the upper-right nook and choose Settings), click on on Search within the left-hand column, then choose your search of alternative within the Default Search Engine pull-down menu. If the one you wish to use is not there, scroll right down to the underside of the web page and click on on Discover extra search engines like google and yahoo.
