Mozilla retires Firefox’s sponsored tiles, hunts for new revenue streams

Filed under
Moz/FF

Firefox's targeted sponsored tiles always seemed a little out of place for a browser that is essentially predicated on free, libertarian ideals. You can't exactly blame Mozilla for trying, though. Since its inception, Mozilla has been entirely reliant on revenues from search engines. For years, Google paid Mozilla hundreds of millions of dollars to be Firefox's default search engine. In recent years, Mozilla has diversified its search engine defaults

We recently released Private Browsing with Tracking Protection in Firefox – a feature focused on providing anyone using Firefox with meaningful choice over third parties on the Web that might be collecting data without their understanding or control. This is a feature which addresses the need for more control over privacy online but is also connected to an ongoing and important debate around the preservation of a healthy, open Web ecosystem and the problems and possible solutions to the content blocking question.

Moz/FF

This is a long-ish message. It covers general topics about Thunderbird
and the future, and also the topics of the Foundation involvement (point
9) and the question of merging repositories (point 11). Naturally, I
believe it’s worth the time to read through the end.

  • Mozilla's Millions Grow Under Last Year of Google Deal

    While Mozilla continues to give away its open source products for free, including the Firefox web browser, it is still generating growing revenues. Mozilla's newly published 2014 financial statements show that the open source software group made more money than ever before in 2014, though 2015 will be a year of challenges.

  • Mozilla: Open Source Firefox Browser Thrives without Cash from Google

    How important is Google to open source? Not quite as important as it was up until a year ago, when Mozilla announced that it was no longer receiving large sums of cash from the search giant. Yet it turns out Firefox and other Mozilla products are still thriving without as much Google support.

  • All hail Firefox Dev Edition 44 – animations, memory and all

    When Mozilla released the first Firefox Developer Edition there wasn't much difference from the regular Firefox release, but all that changed recently.

    Firefox DE 44, delivered in early November, packs in a wealth of new features and improvements, particularly for anyone working with HTML5 and CSS3 animation.

    The Developer Edition's Page Inspector tool adds an animation panel that allows developers to step through animations node by node and easily scrub, pause, and inspect each animation on the webpage.

Filed under
Moz/FF

From blocked videos to annoying ads, there are many things about YouTube we don't like. These restrictions and distractions only dampen the amazing experience that the video-sharing website is meant to provide. If you are a Firefox user, however, you won't have to worry about such things. Firefox offers a variety of add-ons that let you fix pretty much any annoyance that YouTube has. Furthermore, they also let you download videos right to your desktop so that you can watch them whenever you want, even without a connection.

Mozilla: we’re not getting money from Google any more but we’re doing fine

Filed under

Moz/FF

For many years, Firefox developer Mozilla generated substantial income from a sponsorship deal with Google; the search and advertising firm paid Mozilla in return for Firefox making Google its default search engine. That deal was ended last year, with Firefox defaulting to Yahoo in the US, Yandex in Russia, and Baidu in China.

OSS

My open source story started in high school as a student. I always considered myself to be a hacker—not the malicious type, but the curious type who liked to tinker with code and hardware. My first encounter with open source was in 2001 when I installed my first Linux distro, Lindows. Of course, I was also an early user of Mozilla Firefox.
