Firefox Google Deal Gets Renewed

Firefox gets its money back

Firefox Google Deal Gets Renewed
 
Buy firefox from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Early this month we mentioned that Google hadn't renewed the default search deal with Mozilla for Firefox. That deal made the bulk of the income Firefox generates. Neither Google nor Mozilla would comment on the deal that remained unsigned well past expiration.

Mozilla still expected search deals to make a bunch of its revenue showing it hoped the deal would be renewed. Google has now renewed the deal with Mozilla and while the terms were undisclosed I bet Google saved some money.

Google certainly doesn’t need a search deal with Mozilla to make ends meet, but Mozilla and Firefox were virtually dead without Google. Granted Bing could have stepped up and signed the deal. The deal renewal comes at the point where Chrome has pushed both IE and Firefox out of first place.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
