Mozilla seeks to make the full range of the Internet’s extraordinary power and innovative potential available to all. We advocate for “equal rating” where consumers choose content based on the quality of that content, not the financial power and business partnerships of the provider.

The complex and multidimensional challenge of digital inclusion is being tackled by corporations, governments, and ever more so, by entrepreneurs and innovators. Before any of us create solutions though, we need to understand what the key barriers are to Internet adoption, and figure out the best ways to intervene.
