On the blog search engine land, there is a very interesting article by Danny Sullivan. In it, Mr. Sullivan argues that because Google made such a stink about Microsoft making Live Search its default for Firefox 3 search. It is a valid argument that I wish more people would take up. MS was forced to allow people on a fresh install of IE7 to decide what the default search engine was. I choose to use Google, instead of Live Search. However there doesn’t let me add Live Search to the list
In fact w/ MS IE7 I can chooe a whole list:
Something that can’t be done with Firefox, but I can choose to search Creative Commons (what is this?).
The comments are the greatest:
“This story is a joke and you should be [sic]embarassed for posting it.”
“The coexistance of Google and Firefox runs deep enough that you can type a keyword into the browser and you will be directed to the #1 website that is in Google search results for that keyword 90% of the time. Type in a word or a phrase (laptop, cheap laptop, iphone, Danny Sullivan) hit Go and see where you end up. In IE this is not possible”
