We’re excited to announce that Recommendations from Pocket are now part of the new tab experience in Firefox Quantum!
How it works:
When you open a new tab in Firefox, you’ll now see three recommended stories from Pocket. They’re curated from the millions of items being saved to Pocket every day, so they do a great job of representing what’s worth reading and watching on the web.
If you see a story that looks interesting, click it to jump right in! Or, move your mouse to the ●●● button at the top right corner to save it to Pocket and come back to it at a later time.
Below these stories, you’ll also find a set of popular topics. These links lead into Pocket Explore, where you can search and discover popular content on any topic that interests you.
Pocket Recommendations are updated throughout the day, so check back often to see new stories. They’re currently available in the new Firefox Quantum for users located in the United States, Canada, and Germany. If you’re interested in seeing recommendations in your country, please let us know!
Also in the new Firefox Quantum:
Also in Firefox Quantum, the Pocket button has been moved to a new location that’s easier to find. Now, when you’re viewing a page that can be saved, you’ll see a Pocket button on the right side of your Address Bar. In addition, you can click the new Library button to jump directly to your Pocket List to see everything you’ve saved.
What’s next for Pocket:
When we first announced our acquisition in February of this year, we promised:
Together we are going to continue expanding the reach of high-quality content, while staying true to the values that drive both Pocket and Mozilla alike: Protecting the openness of the web and creating a content platform built around trust and privacy.
With the launch of Recommendations from Pocket on the Firefox new tab, we’re excited to continue to move this mission forward, and will continue to iterate and improve how you connect with high-quality content on the web.
