Mozilla will begin pushing sponsored ads/sites into the directory tiles when entering the new tabs page where traditionally it has showed the most frequently visited sites...

As a longtime Firefox user myself, I don't mind at all Mozilla pushing these basic ads into the browser as they better try to capitalize off the web browser. Ads are a way of life on the Internet; as a publisher myself dependent upon ads for making a living, and believer in capitalism, great job Mozilla.
I'm glad he's typing this rather than speaking it, as he would not be able to speak while gagging...

Anyway, I am concerned about this new "feature", but I'll have to wait and see what it is actually about.

I really hate ads, about as much as I hate spam. Actually, I don't see the difference.
