is an opt- in platform that allows us to perform controlled tests of new high- visibility product concepts in the general release channel of Firefox.
Idea Town is not intended to replace trains for most features, nor is it a test bed for concepts we do not believe have a strong chance of shipping in general release. Rather, it is reserved for features that require user-feedback, testing, and tuning before they ship with the browser. = Goals = === Primary Goal === * Idea town will let us take larger risks with product concepts, giving us a cheap avenue to test and validate product concepts. === Secondary Goals === * Idea Town will create a service for Firefox users interested in trying out cutting edge features. * Idea Town will normalize the process for testing and iterating on new UI/UX in the browser. * Idea Town will provide a stable channel to measure user interest in potential Firefox features. * Idea Town will establish a richer relationship for users with Firefox/Firefox Accounts. * Idea Town will introduce a new viral component into browser development. * Idea town will empower Firefox UX to propose and validate product concepts with a large audience. = Get Involved = * '''[ https://docs.google.com/a/mozilla.com/forms/d/1ik_XwGc_5knDDKEmPRu8xK7qzHc-LBlZG5SmSNExod4/viewform Submit an idea!]''' === Looking for code? === * [https://github.com/mozilla/idea-town The website] * [https://github.com/mozilla/idea-town/tree/master/addon The add-on] * [https://github.com/mozilla/idea-town-splash The splash site] === User Experience === * [https://invis.io/RT42BZZVC Mockups] = Get In Touch = * Review our [[Idea_Town/meetings|public meeting notes]] * Join our [https://groups.google.com/a/mozilla.com/forum/#!forum/idea-town-dev Mailing List] * Chat with us on IRC in [irc://irc.mozilla.org/#ideatown #ideatown] = People = === Product Owner === * Nick Chapman === User Experience === * John Gruen * Bryan Bell === Engineering === * Jared Hirsch * Les Orchard * Dave Justice * Wil Clouser === QA Skull Cracking === * Peter deHaan
