In the past couple of years, we have seen a surge of websites adding a paywall to cover their expenses. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since most of us now use AdBlockers which are killing a stable revenue stream for websites including us.
While the implementation of a paywall is good for websites, the users are the ones who end up spending a lot of money to read articles on their favourite websites. Now, Mozilla is working on a system which should allow users to pay minimum fees to access websites. To make this a reality, Mozilla is partnering up with Scroll which offers ad-free reading experience on popular news sites such as The Verge, Buzzfeed, Gizmodo, etc. Mozilla is currently testing their new platform which carries the motto, “support the sites you love, avoid the ads you hate”.
Mozilla has confirmed that the revenue collected by the company will be transferred to websites to give “better journalism experience” to the users. If you’re interested in trying out this new platform then you can head to Mozilla’s landing page for more details. You can also check out Scroll and signup with your email for early access to their service.
