You usually get what you pay for.

Devs used to sell software. Now, nobody pays for software. Companies do, but consumers don't. If I'm going to pay for something, it's going to be a PS3 game that cost millions to make. A useful firewall utility or something - hell no.

Devs spend a lot of time writing a tool - but they realize all they are getting for their trouble is a few dollars per month. My app has 10,000 users per month, I make like $8. Not worth it.

If they bundle crapware with it, or get ads from 'less honest' places - you can make a lot more. If a user clicks on an ad, I get 0.01-0.02 cents most of the time. But if a user installs a toolbar, I'd get 0.30 to 0.40. And nobody clicks on ads anymore. A lot of people miss the toolbar.

That's why a lot of people do it. 100x the revenue is huge.

Actually, Firefox installs a kind of malware too.
It's the Google search provider which is one of their sources of money.

Google pays a big chunk of money to Mozilla to provide Google Search as the default one
