Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Please welcome our first employee: Andrey Novikov · 2011-12-09 21:11 by Wladimir Palant

A few months ago I explained why we changed our policy on donations. This worked out and we were able to hire our first employee: Andrey Novikov. Andrey comes from a web development and server administration background, he is also the developer of the Androzic app for Android-based mobile phones. For now he is working on Adblock Plus for Chrome and already added proper recognition of third-party domains (something that only few people will notice but nevertheless important to bring our Chrome extension on par with the Firefox version). Next task on his list: porting user interface from Adblock Plus for Firefox to Chrome.

    So, why don’t you hire someone to develop AdBlock Plus for IE10/Windows 8? That will be a great move.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    We don’t currently have the budget for that – Andrey will have to stay our only employee for now.

    Since you closed the comments on “Allowing acceptable ads in Adblock Plus”…here is my comment:
    You are no longer an extension that blocks ads. I am not sure why you decided to do this but I hope your motive wasn’t financial. Although you mentioned that those who are subscribed to specific filters can still block everything but your changes still defeats the whole purpose of this extension. Why?
