If you use Mozilla's Firefox browser, this one's for you. Mozilla is teaming up with Yahoo in a five-year deal to make Yahoo the default search provider in Firefox.
That spot previously belonged to Google, and was held by the company since 2004. Mozilla said it decided to make the switch in the interest of choice and independence. (Video via Google)
As part of the partnership, Firefox will sport "a new enhanced Yahoo Search experience that features a clean, modern interface." The updated look will make its way to the browser in December.
