Now the organization is opting for showing ads on a user's home page which they call Directory Tiles. There is no doubt that Mozilla is in a tricky situation as it's multi-year deal with Google will end this year and it's uncertain if Google will renew it. So, ads may be their last resort.

Mozilla will start showing ads in Firefox

  • Each of the last several releases has fallen down rendering more sites than the previous. That alone had me switching somewhere around 23 or 24. Ads on the new user / new tab page might not be that bad, but if it becomes too intrusive or is badly handled, I'll probably do my best to forget the Mozilla Foundation even exists.
