Mozilla reassurance: Firefox new-tab page won't be plastered with logos
"A lot of our community found the language hard to decipher, and worried that we were going to turn Firefox into a mess of logos sold to the highest bidder; without user control, without user benefit," said Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla's vice president of Firefox, in a blog post. "That's not going to happen. That's not who we are at Mozilla."
But the new-tab page still could carry sponsored content from "hand-picked partners," and Mozilla plans to experiment with that in the future.
