Mozilla announced its 2012 earnings last week, reporting record revenue of $311 million.
That figure is a far cry from where Mozilla started.
In 1998, Netscape (remember them?) officially started the Mozilla open-source effort. By 2003, after AOL had acquired Netscape, Mozilla was spun out as its own entity, with some funding from AOL to get started. Within two years of leaving the confines of AOL, Mozilla reported 2005 revenue of $52.9 million.
