    Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer’s closest rival, made the company $52.9 million in 2005 according to Mozilla president Mitchell Baker. Most of this money came from search engines such as Google, with Mozilla receiving money for all the traffic that the browser’s built-in search tools direct to their sites, but small profits were also made from the merchandise sold via the Mozilla store. Mozilla is likely to invest much of this money back into the company, which will hopefully continue its growth and allow it to improve current software and create new applications.

    Good... you didn't notice I missed the million on the title so it looked like it had made about fifty-three dollars :D

    Alright firefox, wtg. Its all the browser I mainly use, though I do use IE7 for the occasional site that wont allow me to view it without IE. I hope for you many successful returns in the future! :toast:

    Same here, I use FireFox for everything, but there are just some sites that need to be viewed with IE.

    With all those revenues, you think maybe they could figure out the memory leak issue. You know the one that's been around since Firefox was invented.

    Hehe :) Yes it's still there, but much better now than before. Still keeping the browser open for a week is impossible.

    Nice to know though that I too have earned them money and can enjoy FF with good conscience.
