To compete with Google [Chrome] they need to not rely on Google for 90% of their funding.

As long as the ads are clearly marked with no privacy implications (no pre-fetch of those sponsored tiles that sends cookies, exec's javascript, pings 40 trackers, etc.) then I support the move.

It's sad, but if Mozilla dies, will any free software group fill their void? The Net would never be the same...
