Firefox gets its money back

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.
