Mozilla released their income numbers recently and it seems 85% of their income is from the partnership with Google, according to ZDnet.
In 2006 they made $66.8 million, up from $52.9 million in 2005 - and 85% of that came from Google. "As in 2005 the vast majority of this revenue is associated with the search functionality in Mozilla Firefox, and the majority of that is from Google," wrote Mitchell Baker in her blog following the financial release.
With expenses below $20 million, Mozilla has a lot of left over cash compliments of the search giant. They increased their assets to $74 million, about $22 million over 2005 numbers.
It is hard to see the two companies parting ways any time soon. Google gets a great deal of traffic from the arrangement.
The Mozilla Project seems to be cashing in on the Google alliance.... name change anyone?
