It’s all about the Google search engine in Firefox
Mozilla Firefox is a popular alternative to Google Chrome. It is all the more interesting to learn that Mozilla is almost entirely dependent on Google.
The point is, Google search is the default search engine in Firefox, and Mozilla gets a lot of money for that. The source learned that the companies signed a three-year agreement, under which the situation with the search engine will not change, and Mozilla will receive about 400-450 million dollars a year for this.
But what’s even more interesting is that Mozilla received $ 430 million from Google in 2018 on a total of $ 451 million in annual revenues. That is, the lion’s share of all the company’s revenue is paid by Google.
Deals like this are the norm for Google. The largest known deal is with Apple, in which the latter receives more than $ 10 billion annually from the former, keeping Google as the default search engine in its Safari browser.
