The browser business isn’t a half bad place to be, it seems.

What an amazing business: make a kick-ass browser for $10-15M a year in expense and make $72M (and growing) in revenue. It’s such a good business that the folks at Flock.com are trying to do a similar thing by building a wrapper with value-added services (like bookmarking tools) on top of Firefox.

Makes you wonder how much Microsoft income is derived from Search in Internet Explorer, doesn’t it?

Someone should make a “cash cow” skin for Firefox. :-)
