Mozilla makes more than $66 million
Increases revenue by 26 percent
Open source browser maker Mozilla saw its profits increase by 26 percent last year. The company made $66,840,850, which was an increase from the $52.9 million it made in 2005.
Chairman Mitchell Baker said that its good financial health meant Mozilla could hire more people, build more products, help other projects and bring more possibilities for participation in the Internet to millions of people. Most of the company revenue comes from Google, according to a related
frequently asked questions page, here.
Google is the default option in the Firefox search bar, and a Firefox-branded Google page is the default home page for Firefox. The Google contract expires in November 2008, which means that Mozilla might have to extend the deal or look for other partners.
