Firefox 34 now offers Yahoo by default

A few weeks ago we announced that future versions of Mozilla Firefox would come out with Yahoo as the default search engine inside. Well, the first such version is out now and is called Firefox 34.

The search engine change will likely affect users in North America only but there are ways to circumvent it if you want to use Google. Users who update Firefox will be asked if they want to switch to Yahoo as their default search provider but there’s a “later” option if they do not want to be bothered with this change. In addition Google is integrated in the new browser version and all you have to do is change the settings that are in charge of this and you are good to go.

Version 34 also comes with a few changes that are likely to make web browsing a bit easier. The search bar has been improved and it is now easier to search within third party sites such as Amazon, Twitter and Wikipedia by using Firefox’s new one-click searches. The new browser also debuts Mozilla’s experimental Hello chat client. This software allows users to conduct audio and video calls with other users directly from the browser. This technology uses an HTML5-based technology called WebRTC (Real-Time Communication) and is completely free. Another fact worth noting is that Firefox 34 does not come with SSL 3.0 enabled as a vulnerability was discovered in this data transfer protocol a few months ago.

The new Firefox 34 browser is available now from Mozilla’s web site.
