Mozilla plans ad-free Firefox Internet browsing for $5 per month2019-07-05 13:16 by Daniela
Mozilla plans to launch an ad-free news subscription service, which, for $5 per month, would offer ad-free browsing, audio readouts, and cross-platform syncing of news articles from a number of websites.
Should Mozilla launch the service, it seems likely to be provided in partnership with Scroll, which has an ad-free news subscription service with 12 media partners, including Slate, The Atlantic, BuzzFeed, USA Today, and Vox.
The idea behind the new service is simple: make sure that site owners and users benefit from an ad-free Internet. Many Internet sites rely on advertisement revenue. Content blockers on the other hand remove ads which is beneficial to the user, but they don't address the revenue issue that arises. You could say that it is not the task of the content blocker to make sure that a site survives, and that is true, but as a user, you may be interested in keeping some sites alive.
Mozilla has confirmed that the revenue collected by the company will be transferred to websites to give "better journalism experience" to the users. If you're interested in trying out this new platform then you can head to Mozilla's landing page for more details. You can also check out Scroll and signup with your email for early access to their service.
