Interesting-I have quite enjoyed my Mozilla Ff/Google combo? No doubt the option to manually select Google as default search engine will be available??

I was not aware of the Microsoft interest in Yahoo?

I'm sure Google will still be an option, but the initial default will be yahoo.



It's interesting from a privacy standpoint, as Mozilla seems to be pushing in that direction. According to this article, Yahoo will begin honoring "Do Not Track" requests as part of the deal: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/11/mozilla-ends-google-relationship-firefox-will-now-default-to-yahoo/
