Jul 8, 2015 — Oracle finally cuts tie with Ask. It no longer installs any toolbars. Instead it prompts to change the default search and homepage to yahoo. This is an improvement because yahoo search is a step up in terms of quality and yahoo does not install a toolbar. The prompt is also made more clear. Unfortunately the option to install yahoo is still on by default.
