Chris Beard, CEO of Mozilla, revealed in a media interview in Germany that Firefox will provide paid premium services to users.
Beard said in the interview that the main source of revenue for Firefox is the browser’s search function, many of which are from the browser’s competitor Google. In order to break the situation, Firefox is currently working on other fee-based services to reduce the reliance on other companies while providing more services to users.
Although the real content of Premium services is still unclear, foreign media estimates that the VPN services and cloud storage services mentioned in the interviews are likely to be the first offerings. As for the current free version of Firefox, Mozilla will continue to develop and support, and will not remove all the functions that are currently available.
