Mozilla’s revenues [2006-2010]
Does Mozilla make money and stay afloat? How can a Foundation which offers bunch of FOSS Software is able to survive? In this post i will not focus on how Mozilla foundation earn money but on Mozilla’s revenues the past 5 years [2006-2010].
To be truth i found a very interesting article on how does Mozilla earn money , so you can have a look at the article . In my opinion the main point of the article is that since 2005 Mozilla Foundation made contractual arrangements with meaningful companies (Google,Nokia etc) and this fact rose up Foundation revenues.
2006 : $66.8 million
2007 : $75 million
2008: $69 million
2009 : $104 million
2010: $123 million
So as we can see during the last 5 years the Mozilla Foundation did double its revenue. That cannot be luck but a matter of hard work and dedication.
