Google now default Firefox search engine in Russia Firefox 14, Mozilla's upcoming version of the browser, will hit Russia with a new default search engine.
According to TNW, Firefox will have Google as its new default, moving from Russia's own Yandex.

Yandex currently has 60 percent share of the Russian search engine market, with Google second at 26.5 percent.

It is unclear how Google leveraged such a deal, but it is likely with monetary gain to Mozilla. Last year, the search giant closed a $900 million deal to have Google become the default engine on Firefox in most nations.
