Firefox downloads good for Google

Newsfactor reports that the free Firefox 1.0 browser has been downloaded over 13 million times since its release in November. That's good for Google, since Firefox has Google as the default search service in a highly usable embedded window in the browser.

I've already argued that Google needs to establish itself in client software before Microsoft embeds MSN search more effectively in Internet Explorer. Investors probably underestimate the risk to Google's search advertising business.
