Tonight,Â Robert Scoble tweeted a single sourced rumor that Mozilla is announcing that Bing will be added as a default search engine in Firefox, as early as tomorrow (Wed Oct. 5).Â To add some credence to the rumor, on Sept 29Â Asa Dotzler of Mozilla posted a â€œweâ€™re getting closerâ€ screenshot of Firefox 4:

Scoble clarified in subsequent tweets that according to his source Bing would not be replacing Google, but added as a default search engine choice. We should know more soon, and Google (in a highly paid placement), and Yahoo! are already on the default search engine list, so adding Bing makes sense and is,Â as Danny Sullivan tweeted, likely overdue.
Still itâ€™s another feather in the cap for Bing, which continues to gain legitimacy, if not market share.
