Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Linux New Media Award for Adblock Plus · 2010-03-04 23:49 by Wladimir Palant

I was at CeBIT today, collecting the Linux Media Award for the best open source Firefox extension. I just want to repeat what I said there: I really didn’t expect to come that far. After all, initially I only intended to quickly improve Adblock and find somebody to maintain the new codebase. And now, four years later, I am still continuing to improve Adblock Plus and there is much more work to be done. This is largely the “fault” of the passionate community who has been a great motivator. So: everybody who helped me and supported the project in all these years (you know who you are and I cannot possibly mention everybody) — thank you!

    So you didn’t follow the ceremony live on the internet? Bad luck for you then :P

    The video will be available on in a few weeks. I guess that they will publish some pictures as well by then because they made quite a few.

    Мои поздравления!
    Спасибо за ваш труд. Без АдБлока эти ваши интернеты невыносимо отвратительны. Я в этом убеждаюсь каждый раз, когда приходится пользоваться IE.
