Mozilla plans to sell ads in Firefox browser

The company said in a blog posting on Tuesday that it has reached out to potential corporate sponsors about its fledgling "Directory Tiles" program, targeted at first-time users.

Novice Firefox users now see nine blank tiles when they open up the browser, which fill in over time with their most-visited or recently visited websites. Now, Mozilla intends to display the most popular sites by location, as well as sponsored websites that will be clearly labeled as such.


I've already heard people saying they were going to drop FF because of this. Are they overreacting?

@incrediBILL,

I meant unlikely that you could not turn it off, not unlikely that you would swtich.

If you are considering Chrome consider Chromium and other Chromium derivatives.
