Google accused of sabotaging Firefox to favor Chrome


A former Mozilla employee has accused Google of employing bad practices in order to attract users to Chrome thus harming Firefox

When talking about the widely used Internet browsers that most of us currently have installed on our desktops and mobile devices, we are referring to a type of programs that have grown in every way over time, both in use, as in functionality and power.Although there are several alternatives available in the current market, most users concentrate on two, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox , all waiting for the success or failure of the new Edge Chromium on which Microsoft is working.With everything and with it, the market penetration of the search giant's proposal is much higher than the rest, since it is around 60% of the total.And since Google Chrome saw the light, the rest of web browsers have been losing share with respect to this, something that has affected and continues to affect Mozilla Firefox, all this despite the efforts of its developers to improve their productin every sense.In spite of everything, it has attracted a lot of attention that at the moment a former employee of Mozilla herself, Johnathan Nightingale , former CEO and vice president of the firm, has affirmed that Google deliberately sabotaged Mozilla to win fans of its software proposal.Specifically, it refers to the moment when Chrome was launched, since from the point of view of Nightingale, Google wanted, in a way, to ally with Mozilla and convinced the firm that both sides were on the same side and pursued common goals.However, despite the "agreed", the search giant gradually enforced the power of the search engine as such, for example by placing its own ads next to the search terms related to Firefox.Google accused of sabotaging Mozilla Firefox in favor of ChromeOn the other hand, he argues, Google Apps began to have problems with the Firefox browser and several websites began to block Mozilla-owned software, making them incompatible, with the almost forced loss of users that all this entailed.Thus, despite these types of movements, Google still wanted to show that it went hand in hand with Mozilla in what refers to this sector of the market, as Nightingale himself suggests in his statements.Thus, due to this type of practice, the aforementioned former Mozilla employee accuses Google of having betrayed the trust of Mozilla, all to win customers for its software , Chrome, hence at the moment it is the most used proposal in the world, and with a huge difference from the rest.In addition, accusations of this type are not the first time that they occur, since other companies in the past have already been affirming that sometimes Google does not use the most licit tactics to promote their products .
