Correct, they are business and they have lots of business expenses. $500 won't be enough to pay even for an hour of their time.
Same thing about telling companies to rewrite their software for Linux. And they will do what with it? Give it away for free? Sell it to 2 people who actually does use Linux? It's not a browser that everyone needs.
At the same time number of "free" developers might pick the challenge and try to fix it. After all $500 is a big money in some places.
