Mozilla ends Tiles experiment for ads in Firefox, will shift focus to ‘content discovery’

Looks like ads are done at Mozilla and Darren Herman is gone too

Mozilla has realized that it doesn’t make sense to offer Firefox features like tracking protection, which blocks website elements (ads, analytics trackers, and social share buttons) that could track you while you’re surfing the web, while at the same time also pushing ads. Even if they’re ads that don’t track you (Mozilla went to extensive lengths to ensure that is the case), it’s still a confusing message to the browser user.
