Ron explains what is happening in the browser world.
Browser makers get a cut from Google if you use the search engine to, well, search online. Those ads you see help pay billions of dollars each year to Apple for keeping Googe the default search engine, and it works that way for Mozilla’s Firefox, too.
So, why doesn’t Firefox get a cut of Google’s search engine money?
Firefox, the main source of Mozilla’s revenue, has become a leader in privacy– which means turning on ad-blockers which means less revenue from users.
That’s what it’s like to shoot yourself in the foot.
