Mozilla recently announced that it was partnering with Yahoo to provide the default search engine in Firefox going forward.

Today, the company has detailed what the future of search in Firefox looks like on its blog.

Firefox’s search will feature an improved search suggestion design and buttons for alternative search engines at the bottom. The idea is that you won’t always want to use the default search engine and might want to directly search something like Wikipedia instead.

Firefox allows you to toggle search engines as before, as well as adding more search providers as you please.

Mozilla didn’t say when the new interface will roll out, but we expect it’ll land when the new Yahoo partnership kicks off this December.
