Google is really trying to put the beating on Internet Explorer by advertising Firefox on the Google homepage. This is the first time that Google has ever promoted a third-party program on their homepage. Also, you will only see the advertisement if you are using Internet Explorer and you are located in the United States.
Ever since Google started to support Firefox I was wondering when they were going to start and push users to switch to Firefox. This will definitely get Firefox some more publicity…and I wonder how many people will download Firefox each day from this subtle promotion? Any ideas? Keep in mind that that Google’s homepage gets approximately 91 million page views in one day.
