CNET reports: Mozilla launched the faster Quantum version of its Firefox browser last fall in a bid to restore the nonprofit’s reach and influence. Now, the leader of that effort has been promoted to oversee all Mozilla products. Mark Mayo, formerly senior vice president of Firefox, is now Mozilla’s chief product officer, CNET has learned. That means he’s taking over more projects, including the Pocket tool and mobile app. Pocket lets people save websites they’d like to revisit, but Mozilla also plans to use the resulting data to help recommend interesting or useful sites to Firefox users. In addition, Mozilla has promoted Denelle Dixon, formerly head of business and legal work, to chief operations officer. She’s overseen an effort to diversify Mozilla revenue sources, including through the Pocket acquisition in February 2017.
