The Mozilla Corporation and eBay International have announced a Mozilla Firefox partnership to “improve the online auction experience for people in France, Germany and the United Kingdom”. According to the press release, “Mozilla and eBay are collaborating on new technology and approaches to enable eBay users to stay up to date with their auctions more easily from within Firefox regardless of where they are on the Web.”
No more specific information has been released but further details are promised in the second quarter of this year. However, an extension that allows users to track eBay auctions from within Firefox seems a likely possibility. It is unclear whether the Mozilla-eBay partnership might be extended globally if the collaboration in France, Germany and the UK is a success.
