Mozilla Firefox Introducing Suggested Tiles Based on Users’ Browsing Habits
The Suggested Tiles features introduced by Mozilla Firefox will be rolling out this summer. This feature will examine your browsing interface and offer you a set of recommended sites based on pages you have visited recently.
The official statement by the company read that most of the users might get worried because Suggested Tiles are based on the pages users have visited recently, however Firefox confirms that user privacy will be protected. According to the company, the software will only collect limited information.
Suggested Tiles is an advertising experience that delivers content recommendations that are relevant for the user in a transparent way while at the same time respecting their privacy, and giving them complete control over the experience.
This new feature is perhaps another tactic of Mozilla’s to make some money from Firefox, since it has not benefited the company as such. Advertisements from other companies collaborating with Mozilla could also very easily boost its income.
So, when the user will open a new tab for the first time after the feature is released, they will see information about what Suggested Tiles are and what they do. Users will also be reminded that they can turn off the feature anytime.
The feature will be available for all Firefox related software including Firefox Marketplace and Firefox for Android. Mozilla also announced its own version of Firefox for iOS, although they previously said that the company would never do so. Since Apple does not allow them to use their search engine.
Firefox currently has 18.27% market share on desktop while Google Chromes owns the market with 52.96 percent. Leaving Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in the middle with 19.85 percent.
