Mozilla is growing, experimenting more, and doubling down on our mission to keep the internet healthy, as a global public resource that’s open and accessible to all.

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. Pocket's core team and technology will also accelerate Mozilla’s broader Context Graph initiative.

“We believe that the discovery and accessibility of high quality web content is key to keeping the internet healthy by fighting against the rising tide of centralization and walled gardens. Pocket provides people with the tools they need to engage with and share content on their own terms, independent of hardware platform or content silo, for a safer, more empowered and independent online experience.” – Chris Beard, Mozilla CEO

Pocket has 10 million unique monthly active users on iOS, Android and the Web, and with more than 3 billion pieces of content saved to date. The company will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Mozilla Corporation and will become part of the Mozilla open source project.

Damn. I've been using Pocket, and Mozilla will ruin them now. Look how the leadership has run Firefox into the ground over the last few years. It's the worst browser since IE.
