What do you think? I mean, the program works but it is an extension that you have to install and can easily uninstall. But Jesse made sure to include this joke in the FAQ, “Of course! Paypal $19 (51% cheaper than Opera!) to me or the Mozilla Foundation, then use Firefox’s Extension Manager to uninstall adbar.” I think this is quite funny.
It’s all about choice. You can have firefox without ads for free or you can have firefox with ads for not $49 or $39 or even $29 but for the low low price of only $19! But wait! There’s more! You can also have the ads for free too if you like! Just set it and forget it!
Mozilla Firefox is not available in any store.
I’m a student and have felt too poor to donate to Mozilla Foundation but if there was a version of this extension that didn’t run in test mode amd proceeds went to the Foundation, I’d run it. Any chance of it happening?
Caused some confusion, at least on some (popular) German tech news sites.
Golem.de has a headline that makes it sound like Firefox is now adware (“Mozilla’s browser Firefox integrates Goodgle ads a la Opera”), the article itself is clearer, though. WinFuture.de took it a step further and totally missed the point, but quickly removed the article after several people complained about it. :)
