It doesn't seem fundamentally different than Firefox's built in pocket integrations. I guess a finance extension is more predatory than a read later extension.
Add in that browsers are free and anywhere a free service is given you are the product being sold.
Important distinction: anywhere a free service is given for profit. This is pretty much reason #1 I like Firefox.
The Mozilla that develops Firefox (corporation rather than foundation) is also for profit, although at the moment they're more in survival rather than profit wringing mode.
