How do IE and Firefox make money? Where is the revenue source coming in from? How do Microsoft and the owners of Firefox make money? Google is planning to create a browser also to compete with them called "chrome". I was wondering where does the source of revenue come in? There are no ads, etc. These programs are free.

Kay.. a) this is not 'news'; why is it in the news forum?
b) Chrome is most definitely not news - it's not something Google is planning - it's been out since 2008.
c) To answer your question anyway, they make money mostly by having you use the default built-in search, which directs to their search engine of choice. (Which then shows you 'sponsored results' along with your search listings.)
