+ - Mozilla will start showing ads in Firefox-> 3

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. Still it's ironic."

Mozilla will start showing ads in Firefox

Comments Filter:
  • 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.
