Mozilla Revenues Soar with Search Marketing Fortunes

Mozilla continues to grow by leaps and bounds, largely owing to the long-standing search distribution deal between Firefox and Google. Between its open source foundation and its corporate arm, Mozilla CEO Mitchell Baker yesterday reported 2006 revenues were $67 million, up 26 percent from 2005, when we first looked closely at the foundation’s results. The money comes from payments Google makes to Mozilla with every search query originating from Firefox. The foundation gets the cash regardless of whether a searcher clicks an ad, though a Mozilla source suggested the amount of its commission rises when ads are clicked.

All total, Mozilla now has some $74 million in the bank, money its using to expand its open source programs and to fund accessibility initiatives for the blind and disabled. It gave $300,000 to such efforts in 2006, an amount it calls “a small first step.”
