In a surprising and unannounced way, Mozilla , who is in the process of changing with a new logo, philosophy and closing bets like Firefox OS, is announcing that they have just taken over the famous reading lists service, Pocket.
For a figure that was not disclosed, the purchase of Pocket is part of a "strategic acquisition" by Mozilla, as it is said that the company will continue to operate independently as a subsidiary.
Mozilla and its strategy change
Pocket, formerly known as 'Read it Later', was founded in 2007 and gradually became one of the most attractive options for saving content for offline viewing, something ideal in the world of smartphones and limited connections.
This option to save "reading lists" was quickly implemented by both browsers and some companies within their devices, but today Pocket says it has more than 10 million active users every month, an attractive figure for this type of services Which many catalog as "niche".
It will be interesting to see what strategy Mozilla adopts with the purchase of Pocket, which although it is said to operate independently, we will surely begin to see over time some exclusive functions or better implemented in the company's products.
