“It’s often easy to forget that even though Mozilla
gives away its flagship product, the Firefox web browser, Mozilla
itself still generates millions in revenues from Firefox usage.
“Mozilla today publicly released its financial statements for
2009, reporting $104 million in revenue for the year. The 2009
revenue tally is a 34 percent increase over 2008, when Mozilla
reported $78 million.
“Mozilla’s revenues have been on a steep rise over last four
years. Back in 2005, Mozilla reported revenues of only $53 million.
The increase in revenue comes as new challenges arise from
competitive browsers and mobile platforms.”
