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.


Back in February we discussed the announcement that Firefox would contain ads [webmasterworld.com].

While I might be disappointed if that should happen, I really can't complain... after all (so far) this is a free product and we all know that free doesn't go very far.

Sometimes we just gotta wonder how some of these apps (like FF) stay alive without some kind of income. After all VC capital only goes so far...
