Just like the web browser companies that own
Firefox, Opera, and others FutureThought
Technologies offers its Dolphin3D Web Browser to users for free.

Mozilla Corporation takes in tens of millions

achieve that goal, we'll be in a position to enter into revenue sharing
interested strategic partners who we believe will best serve the interests of

the development of
products and services that appeal to our users, and to contribute
generously to respected charities.
