Open Source, Firefox and New Search Options Emerge

We often take the ability to choose our default Firefox search engine for granted. By default, it's set to Google, and for most people, this is just fine. But what about queries where a typical search engine is not cutting it? Perhaps you need to try another approach with a competing search engine like Ask, in order to make sure the results you are getting are the best for your needs at the time? This is where a trip to Mozilla's search engine page comes in handy.

Anything You Need, It's Likely There. The great thing about Firefox is that the developers were thinking far enough ahead to shoot past the need to force people to visit actual Web sites for customized searches. Thanks to their search engine extensions, a user has the ability to utilize such customized search solutions as del.icio.us, Technorati, Yahoo! Answers and other options that would not likely show up well within Google's ranking system.

It's a great way to take Firefox's flexibility for a test drive and truly feel what it is that makes this browser so unique, despite its growing success among the masses.
