Test Pilot 1.0 Final: Now is the Time to Help Mozilla Out

If you want to help the Mozilla Foundation make its products better, there is a simple and easy way you can lend a hand – the Test Pilot add-on. Test Pilot is not exactly a new release; the add-on was first announced back in January 2009, then it was released to the public back in August 2009. The catch was that a the time Mozilla rolled out Test Pilot, it was still in its infancy – the version number was 0.1.

I, and many other Firefox fans, downloaded the add-on and showed their support. I only did that because I am a big software and big Mozilla fan. The regular user on the other hand most likely kept away from Test Pilot – as the regular user should, when dealing with applications that are still in their eaerly development phase.


But the regular user needs not stay away from Test Pilot anymore. Mozilla recently announced that version 1.0 has been released, making this the perfect time to get Test Pilot.

“It has been 10 short months since we released the first version of Test Pilot (the inaugural v0.1). Today we are excited to announce the final release of Test Pilot 1.0! Test Pilot is an open research platform, dedicated to building a common and shared understanding of how people are using the Web and browser features through high-quality structured data. Test Pilot supports Firefox and the open source community in their effort to make better products,” commented Product Manager for Test Pilot, Jinghua Zhang.

The Test Pilot program goes something like this: download the Test Pilot Firefox add-on and answer some questions in a confidential and anonymous manner; all the data is kept safe and confidential so you can focus on just answering the questions. In case you were wondering, Mozilla will not just bombard you with questions. It will only ask them when they are really necessary. So what are you waiting for, become a Test Pilot today!
