Mozilla just discovered a whole new way to sneak advertising into your daily routine. As of today, Firefox users will find sponsored tiles mixed in with their usage tiles every time they open a new tab.
The new tile experience begins with a fresh, cookie-free page of options:
Five out of the six tabs are Mozilla related including links to blog posts and tools to improve your workflow. The top right tile is something new; a sponsored link from CVS. Click it and you’ll land on a CVS TV commercial on YouTube. (With a few very colorful comments underneath.) I can’t figure out why CVS is spending money to send people to an old commercial. Shouldn’t this link take us to the CVS website. . . ?
