Google Homepage Promotes Firefox

If you are in the US and you use Internet Explorer, Google homepage will tell you to switch to Firefox. And while you switch to Firefox, you'll also get Google Toolbar.

If you aren't in the US, and you want to see the first cluttered Google homepage, use this free proxy while browsing with Internet Explorer.

If you have Internet Explorer 7, Google homepage is even uglier.

I thought should be simple, as Marissa Mayer once said: "It's simple, it's elegant, you can slip it in your pocket, but it's got the great doodad when you need it."

How much money made Mozilla from Google in 2005?


  1. There has been a lot of press on this over the past couple of days. I didn't see it myself but I think it was an awesome gesture from Google. Google has publicly shown their support for Firefox and they even used it during the Keynote at the 2006 CES.

    Great stuff.

  2. Well, now comes Chrome!
