Mozilla yesterday cranked up Test Pilot — restoring a 2015 project with a name from 2009 — to collect feedback on proposed new features for its flagship Firefox browser.
Test Pilot, which Mozilla dabbled with six years ago, was then aimed at gathering data on how people were using the web in general, Firefox in particular. In its original format, Test Pilot used a Firefox add-on to collect browsing and usage data, and provide tools to answer feedback questions.
Mozilla’s goal this time around the Test Pilot block is different.
“Test Pilot is a way for you to try out experimental features and let us know what you think,” Nick Nguyen, vice president of Firefox, wrote in a Tuesday post to a company blog.
