Mozilla Corporation is planning to launch a new subscription service called Firefox Premium, Mozilla CEO Chris Beard said in an interview with T3N. This is one of those steps which have been taken to increase the revenue of the company.
As of now, Firefox is making money by using Google as its default search engine, and also through its content curation app called Pocket. Beard said that around 90% of the money comes from Search.
Until now, Firefox has been offered for free to the customers. Now, in addition to all the free features, the company is adding two new services in its browser which will costs you some bucks.
In Firefox’s Premium plans, the company is adding secure cloud storage and VPN services for users. Firefox’s VPN would be a two-tier service. All the users would get some bandwidth for free and those who want more would have to shell out money from their pockets every month.
Firefox Premium is set to launch in October 2019 and there will also be a free version of the platform available. The free version will come with all of the features which users are getting right now on Firefox.
