No, because the same would be true if they developed on top of stock OS X or Red Hat Linux.

Using someone else's platform as your base saves development time and money. It doesn't mean it's a smart move, but time and cost considerations seem to be all anyone cares about these days.

That is a lot of money. What could they possibly be spending it on because it certainly isn't firefox. I mean... it is a nice browser... but.... 314 million?

I'm a little flabbergasted by these numbers.

Some people never learned the lessons of Dot Com 1.0. Remember when Eazel got $20 million worth of venture capital just to make a file manager for Gnome?

So either Firefox continues to make it dead easy to change the default search engine to Google, or people will dump Firefox.

I have my doubts regarding whether most users will go to the trouble to change it. I'm always surprised to see how many people never bother to change their landing page or search engine, no matter what the browser is.
