    Is there still a referral program for making money for people installing firefox? I want to know because I have some ideas ^^ Actually, any browser would probably do?

    damn, thanks guys. I knew google ended their cpa/referrals stuff (I think it was because advertisers would rather just advertise for pennies on a click instead of give a commission, though I have nothing to back that up). I just wish there was still someone that was paying for converting people to firefox users :p

    The Google Affiliate Network is the same thing as Performics.

    Google bought DoubleClick and rebranded Performics to GAN.

    EDIT: Also, if you have some good software you wrote yourself to distribute, CNET does a bundle deal on Upload.com with the Yahoo toolbar, if you go to Upload.com.

    Be sure to notice the rules (bolding mine):
    Q: Which products can be bundled with the Yahoo! Toolbar?
    A: The Yahoo! toolbar can be bundled with most any Windows software except products prohibited by the CNET Software Policies and terms of the toolbar affiliate contract, like spyware, adware, peer-to-peer, hacking, gambling or other malicious programs or code or with any software or materials which are pornographic, defamatory or obscene; or alongside any other internet search technology or services.

    Q: How much can I earn from distributing the Yahoo! Toolbar?
    A: You can earn money for each confirmed installation of the toolbar by a US, UK, or Canadian user.

    Q: When will I get paid?
    A: Based on data provided by Yahoo!, CNET will issue checks on a quarterly basis.
