    Nothing strange. Being a good freeware it should have received enough funds. Advertise it - make more popular, receive more funds. Thatz what Firefox is doin now.

    He is funded by google, he is using google referal link for download of firefox. Google pay upto $1 for one download of firefox.

    You can also do this, if you have adsense account

    Ricky, don't mind but Aqua on Windows classic sucks! And that too with multi-coloured tabs! It looks just too gimmicky.

    Edit: Uh... sorry for being off-topic!

    That sponsered link is no way affiliated to Mozilla. If you open that page, you'll find Adsense ads on it .. People may click on it and generate revenue for that site .. Plus, this Firefox they are giving as installation is a part of Google Pack for which they'll get money ..
    So these people are capitalizing on Mozilla's recognition .. Not good ..

    Then why'd you apply the Aqua theme to Firefox? Surely it does not improve usability in any manner. :?
