Internet & Networking Most Firefox users don't realize that Firefox's current existence is owed almost exclusively to its search partnership with Google wherein Mozilla Corp receives a portion of ad revenue from Google queries initiated from Firefox's search bar. This revenue amounts to tens of millions of dollars. Internet users the world over, who are currently reaping the benefit of a renewed browser war with exciting innovation instead of Microsoft-dominated stagnation, can thank Google for that state of affairs. But now that Google has itself entered the fray with Chrome, what does that mean for the Firefox/Google relationship?

Google can't just come marching into Mozilla and make Firefox do a 360.

Especially since a 360 would have it facing back in the original direction, as opposed to a 180. Maybe Google should pull a Tony Hawk and do a 900 with an Ollie into a McTwist!
