"$123 million in 2010 alone."I have no idea how much it costs to run firefox, or how many staff they have on the paybooks, but surely they must have a little kitty stashed away earning lots of interest. I had no idea they made that much money. Wow.

This agreement means that google can be firefox's homepage yet again?  How on earth can that determine the fate of firefox?

No money, no google homepage -> no google homepage, no money.

Google gives Mozilla 84% of their revenue ($123m), so that's around $100m. If they've been running their company on $123m, it's a big step down to run their company on $23m.

Google gives FireFox money for sending people to Google for their searching needs.

Without money from Google, FF would fail.
