A Premium Version Of Firefox Is Coming, Mozilla CEO Says

Mozilla Might Soon Offer a Subscription Service for Firefox

In an interview with German media outlet T3N, the company's CEO, Chris Beard, said that it's aiming to launch the new version by October, with features like a VPN and secure cloud storage. Instead, Google was able to power through the browser market with Chrome thanks in part to Android as well as the Google home page.

Things haven't been ironed out yet, but Beard suggested that some of these additional features will be access to a VPN service and a secure storage space.

Mozilla plans to offer a subscription service inside of its Firefox browser starting October.

So it's easy to see how Mozilla could come up with a number of premium tier versions of these apps and services for its upcoming subscription plan. News of Mozilla launching a premium service was greeted positively online, with many users liking the idea. It was emphasized that all the free features and services now available in the browser would remain gratis going forward. We also recognize that there are consumers who want access to premium offerings, and we can serve those users too without compromising the development and reach of the existing products and services that Firefox users know and love.

All that said, the premium subscription will not affect any features that is already available for free on Mozilla Firefox.

Jan Oblak Reportedly Interested In Manchester United Move
Elsewhere, star forward Antonine Griezmann has confirmed his desire to move on this summer, with Barcelona the likely destination. The Slovenian stopper is rated as one of the best in the world following his performances under Diego Simeone in recent years.

Another surviving service from its discontinued Test Pilot initiative, password manager Lockwise, might also make more sense among a set of services than as a standalone offering.

Mozilla has experimented with a paid VPN service, when it partnered with ProtonVPN to offer its users a $10/month subscription.

This is an interesting move from Mozilla as we don't see this from companies like Google or Microsoft.

A spokesperson for Mozilla declined to provide further information, stating that details will be revealed in the coming months.
