    I'm sure Mozilla knows where they can put that idea - so no thanks.

    Hmm. Well I already have Mullvad, so no thanks to be honest.

    How would this be any better (for an American-based user) than the free VPN from Windscribe or the built-in Opera VPN?

    Two good points made by zapjb and Reality above, as there are a lot of folks (me included) who will continue to use Win 7, and certainly don't care to be bombarded by incessant ads in the FF browser. :thumbd:

    That at least is great news.

    But I still hate browser "VPNs".

    Mullvad - good decision from Mozilla. :thumb: I hope that they will support Windows 8.1 also.

    define "better"? better for what? bypassing geo-restrictions? latency? trustworthiness? privacy? speed?

    I think it's not hard to work out the privacy aspect, being in a privacy forum.

    Exactly. Imagine how annoying that would be. At least if you hit on a site you don't like you can get away from it but, huh, a browser that's with you for the good part of your online time nagging you with flippin ads? :( Pass.

    I don't understand this comment.

    Does this mean UBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger & other similar programs will no longer work once FF starts selling their VPN?

    It will work.
    Some Mozilla VPN ads will probably be served inside built-in Firefox start page and maybe uBlock can't block these, but I am fine with it as long these ads will not track me or consume too much bandwidth.

    So has anyone here tried this new VPN? I got an invite, but did not do anything with it yet.
