Chrome replaced Firefox in Google Pack

Chrome replaced Firefox in Google Pack

Recently I have published a post about Google Chrome not in Google Pack.

Now Mozilla Firefox has been replaced by Chrome in Google Pack, after chrome had come out of it’s beta versions.

But still we have Mozilla Firefox at the bottom of the list in Google Pack. And this is being kept as an optional software.

This is a clear indication that Google now wants to give Chrome to its user.

Will this make any negetive impact on Firefox?

In the past years, Firefox was promoted by Google in a major way. Now Firefox had grown big in the browsers industry and it no longer required Google’s promotion.

Also not most of the internet users will download Google Pack.
