Firefox Shows Some Love to Other Web Browsers

Firefox Shows Some Love to Other Web BrowsersTo make the story short: Before downloading Google Chrome, as usual, I have opened web browser and started to type “Google Chrome” in the address bar, predicting that it will lead me to the Google search results.

Kind of nice gesture from Mozilla, I guess.
