Googlefox Uncovered

Well, now we get the info we need on the elusive “Googlefox”.

The second area of Mozilla intends to explore with new versions of Firefox is integration with desktop search.

Companies like Google, Vivisimo and Copernic make search applications that comb through all the information on a personal computer. The way it is now, a browser’s bookmarks, cache, history and e-mail reader present the desktop search application with a wide array of APIs (application programming interfaces) to negotiate.

Mozilla said it is in discussions with desktop search providers to simplify and standardize those tools to make them more easily searchable by search programs.

I think that’s about the most information disclosed about the Mozilla < --> Google relationship thus far.

Not to mention this.

I think that says a lot.
