    If I search something in Google, Would Mozilla share that search info with Yahoo ?

    • nvm

      What on earth are you talking about?

    Why they are showing 2009 financial statement at the end of 2010?

    • cousin333

      2010 is obviously not finished yet. You don’t get one from Opera also (only for 2010 Q3 which was finished 2 months ago), because it takes time to calculate everything.

        Where did I said that anything about 2010 statement? I’m just asking why it took them 11 months to publish 2009 statement.

          because its Mozilla. look at their pace building FFv4.

        • cousin333

          OK, my fault. Maybe because they are an open company…

          What is interesting is the annual report from Opera for 2009. It states 612 738 thousands NOK (Norwegian krone) as the total income for the year. Although the exchange rate is changed through the year (see: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1+NOK+in+USD+2009), if we assume $0.17 for each NOK, that means almost the same amount of income ($104.165 million actually) as for Firefox in the same year.

          Not long ago, in 2007 Opera got about $45 million while FF got ~$75 million, so much more. Things are much more even now, and so far 2010 looks like a promising year to Opera.

      For some reason, Mozilla always reports they earnings in the mid of November.

  • nvm

    What, no negative quips? Is that only reserved for Google and Opera?

    • cousin333

      I am actually waiting for nobody questioning the validity of those numbers… :)

        the only thing that I personally think is kind of totally useless in this report are the bugzilla accounts.

        I have 3 Bugzilla accounts at mozilla and I used every 3 for exactly 1 report each. that’s it.

        Active bugzilla accounts would be interesting, but the total number?

        apart from that, I think the figures are quite ok :)

        Nobbie swallows anything and everything from Mozilla, but he always rejects things from Google and Opera. Except when the numbers seem to support his delusion, in which case he suddenly accepts them. It’s hilarious!
