Mozilla got into a deal with Yahoo in order to make it the default browser for the users in the US. Although it was a small move, it moved a greater number of users against Firefox. With Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) Mozilla is making Google its default browser and letting the users having the same experience once again.

It was a five-year-long deal made with Yahoo in 2014 but unfortunately, the deal got terminated owing to a few differences. Mozilla Chief Business & Legal Officer  Denelle Dixon further quoted on the issues, “We exercised our contractual right to terminate our agreement with Yahoo! based on a number of factors including doing what’s best for our brand, our effort to provide quality web search, and the broader content experience for our users. We believe there are opportunities to work with Oath and Verizon outside of search,” As part of our focus on user experience and performance in Firefox Quantum, Google will also become our new default search provider in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. With over 60 search providers pre-installed as defaults or secondary options across more than 90 language versions, Firefox has more choice in search providers than any other browser.”

As per the reports from the recode, the clause with the Mozilla deal was made wherein Yahoo agreed to pay $375 million per year through 2019 in case the deal didn’t get through. The clause allowed Mozilla to get back from the deal. This move has made Mozilla Google’s default browser and one of the most referred to browsers.
