Default So did Firefox make $72M last year?

Do you use the little Google search box on FireFox? If so then you will have helped sustain future development of the browser. See this weblog

Just to help out I made a couple of searches since reading the Blog, but did not need to click an adword block - the sites I wanted were already in the main listing.

No, I use the address bar - Google search integration in Mozilla; I find searching with Firefox a pain: that box is much too small! The address bar gives you room to type a whole expression; I very rarely search for a single word, and anything more - with ordinary word lengths - already doesn't fit in the Firefox search box.

I'm hardly using Firefox at all any more, since it became super slow in my dressage forums. Nothing I could do would speed it up, and none of the other browsers had the same problem.

For forums I'm using Camino, although it has a couple of little idiosyncrasies. For general browsing I still use the elegant Safari.

How about posting a photo of you in your elegant Safari outfit then?

Only men get those, Rik. BTW, did the safari suit of the seventies reach your shores, or was it a purely Australian phenomenon?

OK, I'll admit to owning a crimplene suit. Did you own a safari suit?

I can say, in all honesty, that I didn't, Ann. I did have a few kipper ties though...

Mozilla Corp has confirmed the Firefox "earnings". See here.

I wonder if the ability to create such an income stream from a browser had a part to play in the decision to make Opera free for all?
