Firefox is one of the main competitors to Internet Explorer's dominance of the web browser market. It is a browser that prides itself on looking forward and responding to the ever changing needed of users, and this is something exemplified by Mozilla Test Pilot.
This is a Firefox add-on which enables you to interact with the developers of Firefox to help determine the future direction of the browser and other Mozilla products. The add-on will alert you to the availability of various tests that are available from time to time and you are invited to participate in as many or as few as you wish.
The tests take a number of forms. Some may involve answering questions, while others involve posting information about the way in which you use your web browser. The answers you provide could help to determine what new features are added to the browser, or change the way it looks in future versions.
If you're keen to try out the latest in browser developments, Mozilla Test Pilot enables you to take an active role in Firefox's development. Installing the add-on means that you will be among the first to find out about and try out new features and interface enhancements.
While the Mozilla Test Pilot add-on does not have any intrinsic use, it is of interest to anyone who wants to be at the cutting edge of browser technology.
