Mozilla Confirms Firefox Taking In Millions Of Google Dollars
Mozilla Corp. on Tuesday confirmed that it is taking in millions of dollars from the Firefox browser, but declined to give an exact figure.
In making the disclosure, Mozilla, the for-profit subsidiary of the nonprofit Mozilla Foundation, was responding to a report that the company has taken in $72 million, primarily through Google Inc.'s search box on the right-hand corner of the browser.
"The amount isn't accurate but isn't off by an order of magnitude either," Mitchell Baker, chief executive of Mozilla Corp., said in an email from the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in San Diego. "Mozilla Corp. doesn't generally discuss the amount of revenue generated or the specific details of our partnership agreements, as these agreements are confidential in nature."
