From the very beginning, one of the key goals for Firefox Marketplace has been to develop an app store with a strong community curation element. We feel it’s in the best interest of both content developers and consumers to offer a truly democratized app discovery experience.
Today we took a small but significant step in making community curation a reality. We just published a page whereby anyone can nominate their favorite apps on Marketplace. Top picks from the community will in turn become featured apps on Marketplace.
For now, community and Mozilla editorial staff picks will be consolidated under the single banner of “Featured Apps” on Marketplace, but we’re working on a new Marketplace design that will present community curated content in a distinct and highly visible way. Stay tuned for more on that in the coming months.
So please go nominate your favorite apps now!
