Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For the longest time, the default search provider in Ubuntu Linux has been Google, but this is going to change in the next release, Lucid Lynx, scheduled to release April 29. The change comes after Canonical has signed a revenue sharing deal with Yahoo!, so you can imagine who the new default search provider will be.

I can't believe that nobody gets it that it's not related to google chrome (the web browser) at all.

What they're trying to explain is that the start page for the search in Firefox in Ubuntu 10.04 will match the settings chosen by you in the search box from the top right.

We are perfectly aware of that.

The reason we are mentioning Google Chrome is because that browser isn't affected by the change in default search provider, and as such we don't give a damn about the change.
