Google and Mozilla have reupped their search revenue agreement. Under the new three-year plan, Google Search will continue to be the default search provider for Firefox users.
Given Google's clear desire to push Chrome into the top ranks of the browser market, it would seem counterintuitive for it to re-ink a deal with one of its chief rivals in that arena. Chrome is either about to overtake Firefox in global Web browser usage or already has, based on recent reports. Internet Explorer is still the browser to beat in office usage -- but for home use, more and more consumers are turning to two alternatives: Chrome and Firefox.


Firefox is still on the way down

I would think this is for Google to maintain respectful relations with the developer community. The amount of money involved is a drop in the bucket for Google. Regardless of what Firefox does, they're bloated and on the way down and that browser is not a threat to the much faster and much more modern Chrome.
