Mozilla not worried about Chrome
John Lilly, CEO of Mozilla Corporation, has said Mozilla is not worried about the announcement of Google's Chrome web browser. In an interview with Om Malik, Lilly said "They feel that they can make a better browser by starting from scratch–advances in browsers are good."
Lilly is waiting to see what the overall impact of Google Chrome will be but admits "Of course we would have to compete" but points to Mozilla's focus on just the web browser as their strength, "Our only agenda is to make web better – it is our single mission".
Google and Mozilla have a financial relationship where Mozilla receives money for featuring Google in its default home page and search bar. The deal was due to expire this year, but Mozilla announced last week that the deal had been extended to 2011. Mozilla's 2006 accounts showed $61 million dollars of Mozilla's $66 million revenue coming from search deals.
