Dell deal bolsters Google search

Google has taken a major step towards challenging the dominance of Microsoft by signing a deal with Dell.

The agreement means millions of Dell computers will leave the factories with Google software already installed on them. The software includes several personal computer applications, a Google toolbar and a co-branded homepage. This could pose a serious challenge to the hold Microsoft has enjoyed on 90% of the world’s computers.

The Seattle software giant has enjoyed a significant advantage over rivals, with computers automatically defaulting to Microsoft products.

In practice, most people stay with the default programs and search technology that comes with their machine.
