> Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. The first two are funded by Google ads.

Safari is funded by Google Ads exactly as much as Firefox is -- both collect enough money for the default search provider setting from Google to fund their development.

Uhh, with the small exception that Safari is a strategic product of the world's most valuable company, and they force it onto every single user of their primary operating system.

If Safari needs something, the powers at Apple don't need to wring their hands: "Gee, I wish we could get more money from Google somehow."
