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?
Zunächst John Voorhees auf MacStories mit den Money Quotes:
Instapaper was sold by developer Marco Arment to Betaworks in 2013 and then to Pinterest in 2016. Today, Pocket took a similar path by being acquired by Mozilla, maker of the Firefox web browser.
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.
