Mozilla extends deal with Google

Ever wonder how much a company like Mozilla is getting paid to set your default search engine on their web browser (Firefox)? Well, amazingly enough they made $56,000,000 in 2006 by setting Google as the default browser on Firefox. All I can say is Wow, and I'm wondering why I'm not getting anything for having Google as my default homepage?

Mozilla, the organization behind the popular Firefox web browser, has extended its search deal with Google for another three years. In return for setting Google as the default search engine on Firefox, Google pays Mozilla a substantial sum - in 2006 the total amounted to around $57 million, or 85% of the company’s total revenue. The deal was originally going to expire in 2006, but was later extended to 2008 and will now run through 2011.
