Mozilla will launch a paid version of Firefox this fall

As far as Firefox's Premium plans are concerned, it's now exploring the possibility of secure cloud storage and VPN services for users.

As TNW reports, via its German source, Mozilla has already experimented with a partnership with ProtonVPN and $10 subscription deals. Doing so required a logo that establishes Firefox not just as a single app, but as an ecosystem that helps users manage their privacy online. However, this might change in the near future thanks to the release of Mozilla Firefox Premium - or at least some freemium services not necessarily tied to the browser.

Until now, Firefox has been offered for free to the customers.

"So, what we want to clarify is that there is no plan to charge money for things that are now free".

But here's the best part: all the features that are now on Firefox won't change. It's still unclear if there will be only one subscription service encompassing all the premium features, or of each feature will be a separate subscription. Would you pay for a premium VPN/cloud experience bundled into your Firefox? But the fox doesn't stand alone: The branding system also includes logos for Firefox Lockwise, Firefox Send, and Firefox Monitor, all of which elevate simple line drawings that recall what each service does using bright, colorful gradients of orange, yellow, pink, blue, and purple. We also recognize that there are consumers who want access to premium offerings, and we can serve those users too without compromising the development and reach of the existing products and services that Firefox users know and love.

This subscription service is Mozilla's latest attempt at finding alternative methods of monetizing its service. The new look is said to support its evolving product line and the four pillars of its branding; "radical, kind, open and opinionated".

The new browser will arrive this fall and will require a subscription.
