Recommend Firefox and Google will pay you $1

InternetWeek reports on an interesting plot by Google to get its AdSense partners to recommend Firefox downloads.

The Mountain View, Calif., search-engine giant is providing its ad publishers with a set of buttons that Web site visitors can use to download Firefox with the Google Toolbar, which is a browser add-in that takes a user directly to Google services, Mozilla said this week. Site operators using the buttons will be paid $1 each time someone installs the browser and toolbar.

Now we know what they had planned for that recently raised capital. ;-)
