Mozilla Foundation chairman Mitchell Baker on Tuesday disclosed how much money Mozilla made from their Firefox web browser in 2005: $52.9 million.
Figures were not disclosed for 2006 but Baker did say the foundation's 2003 revenue was $2.4 million and 2004 revenue was $5.8 million. You can take a guess at 2006 revenue and project 2007 revenue based on that. Now the obvious question; How does Firefox make money?
You see that little Google search box on the upper right? If you use that box to make a search and click on one of the Google ads from the results page, Firefox gets an estimated 80% of the money.
