Auf den ersten Blick erscheint der Kauf des Später-Lesen-Services Pocket merkwürdig. Was will die Non-Profit-Organisation hinter dem Open-Source-Browser Firefox mit einem Später-Lesen-Dienst?
Pocket says that it:
will continue on as a wholly-owned, independent subsidiary of Mozilla Corporation. We’ll be staying in our office, and our name will still be on the wall. Our team isn’t changing and our existing roadmap has been reinforced and is clearer than ever. In fact, we have a few major updates up our sleeves that we are really excited to get into your hands in the coming months.
For its part, Mozilla says:
Pocket will join Mozilla’s product portfolio as a new product line alongside the Firefox web browsers with a focus on promoting the discovery and accessibility of high quality web content.
