In September 2021, Mozilla announced that it was testing Microsoft’s Bing as the default search engine in the Firefox browser. And now a new report shows that Microsoft is also looking to enter a contract with Mozilla to use Bing instead of Google. The source of this claim is The Information.

Accordingly, Bing’s percent share in March decreased to 8.23.
