Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubufox

Related to bug 578281, I'd like us to switch to Baidu as the default search engine for Chinese users now that Google no longer caters to China.
This would be targeted for Maverick Alpha 3 or earlier.

Apparently many people consider Baidu insanely evil. Considering the amount of loathing generated by Bug #578281 (which merely added Baidu as an option), I suggest this be "won't-fix"ed in ubufox too.
