Yahoo and Microsoft fight to replace google in safari as a default search engine
Yahoo and Microsoft fight for taking over Google’s position as the default search engine in Safari. Google is paying $ 1 billion to Apple for a year, but the agreement expires next year.
Apple’s agreement with Google to let Google be the default search engine in Safari expires next year. Therefore, Yahoo as well as Microsoft are up to scratch to get to the dish. According to the close sources Yahoo and Microsoft already has agreements with Apple. Yahoo provides data to Apple’s Securities app, and Microsoft provides search results to Siri. Both are, however, interested in taking over Google’s role as the default search engine in iOS as well as OS X.
Apparently Google pays annually $ 1 billion to Apple for the agreement and the new search engine will have to pay much beyond these numbers.
