Mozilla to Test Firefox Better Web Service

As part of the Test Pilot program, Mozilla invited Firefox users to test the new Firefox Better Web with Scroll service, which is experimenting with alternative types of site financing. Testing is available only to users of desktop versions of Firefox from the United States. A single Firefox account, also used for synchronization, is used to connect. To participate, you must install a special add-on in Firefox.

The main idea of ​​the project is to use a paid subscription to the service to finance the creation of content, which allows website owners to do without showing ads. The service is organized in conjunction with the Scroll project, developing a model similar to that implemented in the Brave browser – the user pays for a subscription to the service ($ 2.49 per month) and has the ability to view sites that have joined the Scroll initiative without advertising inserts. At least 40% of the funds received from users is distributed between the owners of partner sites, in a proportion corresponding to the time spent by users subscribed to the service on each site (data on how much time is spent on sites Scroll service collects using JavaScript code placed on partner sites).
