Mozilla Starts Pay Program For Firefox Add-On Developers

Written by Daniel
Friday, 17 July 2009
Developers who create Firefox add-ons can now solicit payment for their work through the add-on download site.

Many of the developers who add value to the Firefox ecosystem by creating add-ons do so without any expectation of being paid.

At first I was thinking this was pretty decent of Mozilla, then I read the article and realized Mozilla isn't paying anything, but rather letting people make donations to the add-on developers. I would imagine if it actually becomes profitable Mozilla will get there hands on some of the money, at which point I will switch browsers again..
