Mozilla clarifies, defends Firefox ad position

I personally think this is good for Firefox but I understand’s users’ concerns because it’s a slippery slope once your organization gets addicted to online ad revenues:

“We think we can offer people useful content in the Tiles,” she added. “When we have ideas about how content might be useful to people, we look at whether there is a revenue possibility, and if that would annoy people or bring something potentially useful. Ads in search turn out to be useful. The gist of the Tiles idea is that we would include something like 9 Tiles on a page, and that 2 or 3 of them would be sponsored — aka ‘ads.’ So to explicitly address the question of whether sponsored tiles aka ‘ads’ could be included as part of a content offering, the answer is yes.”
