StatCounter reports that Google has seen its search share slip to its lowest level ever in the U.S. In the meantime Yahoo is being buoyed by their new deall with Mozilla that makes them the default search engine.
Google search share has slipped to lowest ever in U.S. – 75.2 percent from 79.3 percent last year, according to an independent analytics firm. On the other hand, Yahoo Search has managed to score its highest share in five years – 10.4 percent, up by 3 percent from last year.
StatCounter underscored the fact that Yahoo’s gain in search market coincides with its partnership with Mozilla, that has made Yahoo its default search engine on the Firefox browser. Reportedly, Yahoo usage on Firefox has tripped after the partnership.
