Mozilla’s revenue largely comes from Yahoo, Yandex and Baidu after end of deal with Google

Mozilla Foundation

On Wednesday, the Mozilla Foundation – the nonprofit organization behind the Firefox browser – reported its financial results for 2014; the year in which Mozilla Foundation’s lucrative deal with tech giant Google came to an end.

Reporting its financial results for 2014, Mozilla revealed that – after the culmination of its deal with Google – it is getting a large part of its revenue from Yahoo, Yandex, and Baidu. In addition, the nonprofit organization has also worked out deals with Bing, Amazon, and eBay and Bing; and it also receives donations and grants.

According to the figures shared by Mozilla in its earnings report for 2014, the total revenue which the foundation generated in the reporting year stood at US$329.5 million. The figures reported by Mozilla underscore a $15 million increase over the revenue generated by the foundation in 2013.

Mozilla also revealed that its deal with Google accounted for a whopping 88 percent -- or approximately $275 million -- of its revenue in 2013. The foundation also said that the Google deal contributed to its modest growth in 2014.

However, with Mozilla’s deal with Google having come to an end, and the foundation partnering with other search providers to be the default engine in its browsers, Mozilla said in an FAQ: "We will continue to invest in these and other partnerships that allow us to expand our impact on the world."
