Microsoft and Yahoo likely to end US search alliance as Google remains market leader
Internet giants Yahoo and Microsoft failed to make progress with their renegotiation of a ten-year search deal that was made by the companies' former bosses to rival Google.
The companies have extended the deadline to re-negotiate the deal by 30 days, signalling a possible break-up between them.

If thereís one silver lining for Yahoo in this particular cloud, itís that the company still has a lead of almost 4 percentage points over Microsoft in the realm of mobile search, according to StatCounter. Much like other areas of the tech industry, consumers have been shifting more and more of their time over to mobile, and Yahoo may be able to keep its lead there.
