Mozilla Test Pilot platform

Mozilla Lab has just announced the availability of Mozilla Test Pilot as a plug-in for Firefox 3.5.x. The goal of this platform, according to Mozilla ‘is to encourage everyone from all levels of skill and all levels of technical knowledge to improve the Web experience by participating in these tests’.

‘Once you install the Test Pilot add-on, you will automatically receive notifications on upcoming and finished tests. You will have the option to quit tests or leave the platform. If the test requires you to install a new feature or product, the platform will ask for your permission’.

What about the privacy? According to Mozilla lab they are ‘only interested in your feedback on the product features, not information about you’. ‘The program will never collect user information without first having the participant’s explicit permission’.

Are you ready to lose some of your privacy to help Mozilla? Then, participate in the program. More information on Test Pilot Platform is available at the official website of Mozilla.
