Mozilla‘s vision of the Internet is a place where anyone can access information, a place where everyone can hack and tinker; one that has openness, freedom and transparency; where users have control over their personal data and where all minds have the freedom to create and to consume without walls or tight restrictions.
In less than 20 years the Internet has changed our lives. It is a powerful platform with unprecedented opportunity and connectedness. But even with great growth and innovation there are significant challenges to this vision of a healthy Internet.
Mozilla is mobilized to ensure the protection of the Web and to empower tomorrow’s webmakers and Web users. Today, Mozilla is growing — with more employees, contributors, products and locations — to ensure that the Web remains an open, vibrant ecosystem. Because, the Web is the platform for building the world we want.

Mozilla is an organization that is fundamentally about people and making the Web better for everyone. The Mozilla community is essential to the success of the project. We can’t fight for an open, hackable and transparent Web without people who believe in and support that cause. We have Mozilla communities spanning the world and these remarkable people are responsible for coding, testing, localizing, hosting hackfests and summer code parties, teaching Webmakers, marketing, evangelizing Mozilla products and much more.

Sustainability and Partnerships
Along with this annual report, we released our audited financial statements for 2011. Mozilla remains well positioned, both financially and organizationally, to advance our mission of building openness, freedom and participation into the Internet.
Mozilla remains financially healthy; we continue to hire more people globally, we’ve opened new Mozilla Spaces around the world, have launched significant new initiatives such as Firefox OS and are able to support those with viable resources.
The majority of our revenue comes from the search functionality in the Firefox browser. Google is the largest source of revenue and in December 2011, we announced that we negotiated a significant and mutually beneficial revenue agreement with Google. This new agreement extends our long term search relationship with Google for at least three additional years.
Mozilla has a number of other relationships in the Web community, as well as new relationships with mobile operators, device manufacturers, third-party content partners and other players in the mobile ecosystem.
