Mozilla seems to be aware of it, but on the blog of Johnathan Nightingale, vice president of engineering at Mozilla, though they will still continue to roll out and realize the idea.
Acknowledged that the February announcement that it would insert ads in its flagship browser had not been well received. But the company has no intention of dropping the idea.
We will experiment, In the coming weeks, we'll be landing tests on our pre-release channels to see whether we can make things like the new tab page more useful, particularly for fresh installs of Firefox, where we don't yet have any recommendations to make from your history. We'll test a mix of our own sites and other useful sites on the Web. We'll mess with the layout.When it unveiled the project and later defended it from critics, Mozilla executives said the ads were necessary to diversify the company's revenue sources, which currently rely almost entirely on deals with several search firms, most notably Google.
[People] worried that we were going to turn Firefox into a mess of logos sold to the highest bidder; without user control, without user benefit, That's not going to happen. That's not who we are at Mozilla.
I think it is absolutely yes. Why? Because there is some basis of my opinion of it, which makes sure that the idea was not true.
Not Media Advertising
As a means of internet explorer Firefox is definitely in the category of Software Tools, this would be very annoying for users. Because users have certainly thought they were looking for a tool that is easy to install, fast performance, readily available and safe in terms of securities, and up to this time is including the popular browser.
Plan the Less Brave
Actually if Mozilla wants to be creative in developing into the world of advertising, they can be more daring with existing resources, by making an Ad-sense, Ad-words (as in Google), Buy And Sell Advertising or another. Because the number of Firefox users are so many, it would be easy to direct users to the Mozilla site, and even now already done like that.
From the basis of the above two, it can be concluded that, in fact the idea Mozilla is the easiest idea to be realized, because it does not need to bring up a website with a new concept of neighbor advertisement, but enough to add or update their Firefox software to be able to trigger an ad they offer.
But I realize that the decisions they make in the idea certainly is not as easy back your hand, but with careful consideration of the full technical and business terms. Although the final decision would thus surely all of the users.
