According to the German T3N website, the Mozilla Foundation plans to launch a paid version of its famous Firefox browser in the fall of 2019 with advanced features such as VPN and secure cloud storage service.
Chris Beard, CEO of Mozilla, said the company did not plan to charge for existing free features, but would offer a monthly subscription to Firefox with many advanced features.
The company had already started testing the VPN service last October in collaboration with the ProtonVPN service for a monthly fee of $ 10. The company is now considering a free VPN service with limited data, with a paid subscription to make it open.
It should be noted that Mozilla wants to open a new revenue field where 90% of the company’s revenue has come from search engines with companies such as: Google, Yandex.
