Yandex wants to stand in the line of Windows Search 10

The largest Russian Internet company Yandex is ready to negotiate with Microsoft to provide its search technology on Windows 10 in Russia and other markets, wanting to gradually reduce the business impact of ruble volatility.

Earlier in September, Microsoft announced that Chinese search engine will be the browser home page Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 by default in China.

“The fact that (the search engine Microsoft) Bing can be in Windows 10 is replaced by something that is a big deal, until this has never happened. We hope that such a precedent could be extended not only to Russia but also to other markets. For example, in Turkey, “- said Volozh.

“Microsoft is now merges desktop and mobile (platform) together. They will have a pretty decent proportion. If you take the sum of all the screens - 20-30 percent, meaning they player ecosystem.”
