Today the Mozilla Labs team announced its Test Pilot platform is opening with the release of the first Test Pilot add-on for Firefox 3.5. They are looking for Firefox users of all levels of skill and technical knowledge to help improve Firefox and Labs experiments.
The Mozilla Labs teams explains the project further in its blog post, excerpted below:
Test Pilot is an opt-in program that everyone on the Web can join to improve the Web experience by participating in usability related tests.
As a Test Pilot, you will not only be able to try out the newest features and user interface ideas before anyone else, but also see and learn how those results may contribute back to the product design.
For now, we will start the Test Pilot program with a survey to understand what type of Web users this pilot community represents. Soon, we will roll out the first tests on specific Firefox features and other Mozilla Labs experiments.
