Yahoo Now Default Search Engine on Asian Versions of Firefox 1.5

Yesterday, Firefox launched version 1.5 of its browser and at the same time announced a “stratgic partnership” with Yahoo in China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.

Yahoo will now distribute Firefox 1.5 in those markets and will be the default search engine on Firefox 1.5 in each of those countries.

Previously, Google was the default engine for these versions of Firefox.

I just downloaded the U.S. package of Firefox 1.5 and Google was still the homepage.
