No More Ads In Firefox Tiles

Quote:
For the past three or four years, I have been one of the unhappiest Firefox fans. Even since the parent company decided to ape Chrome, it went downhill. A steep slope full of rusty metal spikes, mines, bears, wolves, dragons, trolls, acid, and death. One bad news after another


Now though, something really good has happened. Mozilla has officially announced they are going to remove advertisement from the Tiles.

It is nice to read about actual improvement to FF, instead of the usual claptrap about the latest useless "exciting & empowering" changes.

I never knew a new Firefox tab showed ads. I'd seen the stories, the complaints, and now the "no more ads" thing. But never ads.

When I was still running FF on my main PC, I disabled the thumbnail launcher thing.

Note
I still use FF in my VMs and in Linux Mint.

Will windows 8 live tiles have advertisements in the future
I'm looking forward to the metro UI on windows 8. I think hybrid laptops are the future. Laptops where the screen becomes a tablet. Metro will be good for these devices. But will live tiles feature advertisements like on the xbox 360? I wouldn't find that acceptable, but it's always a...
