Mozilla renews search agreement with Google

Mozilla, the organisation behind the Firefox web browser, counts Google as its biggest source of revenue.

In fact, last year, the search giant was responsible for the vast majority (84%) of Mozilla’s $123m in revenue.

Thanks to a new three year agreement announced yesterday, this relationship will remain in place under financial terms that are undisclosed.
