Mozilla Starts Pay Program For Firefox Add-On Developer
Mozilla Starts Pay Program For Firefox Add-On Developers
Many of the developers who add value to the Firefox ecosystem by creating add-ons do so without any expectation of being paid. Now, faced with the emergence of Google (NSDQ: GOOG)'s Chrome browser, which can also be enhanced with add-ons, Mozilla is looking to keep its developers happy by providing them with a revenue opportunity......
Mozilla Asks Users to Support Browser Add-ons - PC World
Developers building functional add-ons for the Firefox browser can request financial contributions from users through an effort launched this week by Mozilla.
The Contributions Pilot Program is billed as a way for developers to showcase themselves next to their Add-ons and receive a suggested contribution for their work, via PayPal. With the Contributions feature, developers can tell the story of what motivated them to build an Add-on.
[ Mozilla's latest browser, Firefox 3.5, was released last month. ]
"The Contributions Pilot explores how we can help our add-ons ecosystem by allowing developers to request financial participation from satisfied users," said Nick Nguyen, director of Add-ons at Mozilla.
So now those who create all those great add-ons can get something back from them! This should encourage some more development.
