Mozilla, Google, Real Ink Software Deal

In an effort to compete directly with Microsoft, RealNetworks, Google and Mozilla announced a multi-year deal Wednesday where both the Google Toolbar and Mozilla Firefox browser would be bundled with Real's RealPlayer software. The announcement is a expansion of an existing two-year agreement with Google. When installing RealPlayer, users would now also be given an option to install both pieces of software during the process.

The deal is likely to benefit Firefox the most. The browser, now used by 15 percent of US Internet users, would receive additional exposure it may have not received otherwise. "Mozilla is very pleased to partner with global leaders like Google and Real to distribute our award-winning Firefox Web browser," Mozilla CEO Mitchell Baker said in a statement.
