[Discuss] firefox: hello & pocket

Does anybody else find it annoying that firefox pushed these two services into the browser?  Why bake it in and not make them plugins or something?

It reminds me of Apple pushing Safari on Windows users who had iTunes installed years back, even though they never asked to install Safari (which ended up having a ton of security flaws, which I think were never patched).  Feels like dirty marketing.
