Real to distribute Google and Mozilla software RealNetworks, Google and Mozilla Corp. have announced a deal under which Real will distribute Mozilla and Google software with its own software downloads. Users for example would get the option to install the Firefox web browser when installing RealPlayer. For the past two years, Real has already been distributing millions of Google Toolbars to users. Real reportedly distributes 2 million pieces of software a day worldwide.
"Real has been one of Google's most important distribution partners for the past two years, and we are delighted to broaden and deepen that relationship. Google and Real will continue to work together in innovative ways to further improve the Web experience." said Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Mozilla is simply happy to be siding with these two well known companies to get Firefox onto more computers.

"Mozilla is very pleased to partner with global leaders like Google and Real to distribute our award-winning Firefox Web browser. Thanks to our global community of open source contributors, Firefox is making the Web browsing experience better for everyone." said Mitchell Baker, Mozilla Corp CEO. Real CEO Rob Glaser is also happy about the deal with both other companies.

"Real and Google share a common passion for innovation that has enhanced the Web experience. The Google Toolbar has been a welcome addition to Real customers, because Google simplifies and enhances how they interact with the Web. We think our customers will feel the same way about the Firefox Web browser." he said. Downloads of RealPlayer, Rhapsody music service, and RealArcade games will offer both the Google Toolbar and Mozilla Firefox shortly.
