Submission + - Mozilla ditches Firefox's new-tab monetization plans (

hypnosec writes: Mozilla has ditched its Firefox’s new-tab monetization plans as they ‘didn’t go over well’ with the community finding it hard to understand the scheme. Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla’s VP of Firefox said that a lot of Firefox’s community was worried that Mozilla was “going to turn Firefox into a mess of logos sold to the highest bidder” and that users wouldn’t have either control over this or any actual benefit. “That’s not going to happen. That’s not who we are at Mozilla.”
