Going by what Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, has to say, his company “looked very closely” at replacing Firefox, the longtime default web browser in Ubuntu, with Chrome this time around.
Firefox managed to avoid being dropped off Ubuntu, however, with Shuttleworth saying that that won’t change with the upcoming release of Ubuntu 12.04 which is a long term support release set to release next spring.
Seeing as how Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution out there, the folks at Mozilla are well advised to persuade Canonical that Firefox is worthy of remaining Ubuntu’s default browser with all they have got.
