[19659004] "Today our products, technology and policy efforts are stronger and more resonant in the market than ever, and we have developed significant new organizational capabilities and financial strength to boost our work. From our new strategy of privacy products to initiatives such as the state of the Internet, we are ready to take advantage of the tremendous opportunity and future challenges to ensure we are doing even more to put people in control of their connected lives and shape the future of Internet for the public good.

"This includes revitalizing our flagship Firefox web browser to be once again the best product in its class.

" It includes reloading our approach to meet the online security and privacy needs facing people today in day, and includes expanding our product offerings beyond the browser to include a set of products and services focused on privacy and security from the Facebook Container and Enhanced Tracking Protection to Firefox Monitor ". ®
