Who is behind AdBlock Plus?

My friend and colleague Sasha has a story that ye should read them through once over at the Mobilegeeks. If you ever wanted to know who is behind AdBlock Plus, how the whole thing ever financed, should read the text. If all these statements are true, which are held there, then you can really speak of structures that may not approve of the Internet should be. This is not that advertising is blocked, but the fact that there are major beneficiaries. Companies to display their advertising money may seem.


Adblock Plus is the hitherto most successful browser extension for Firefox and Chrome. The add-on has been prepared over two hundred million download Firefox at times and is used daily by more than 15 million users of the browser. 30% of users seem to originate from the U.S., about 20% of the German-speaking world.

The article aims to answer questions that might one or the other people sometime make: Fifteen people, including two managers and offices in Cologne Cluster House? And the only product is a free browser extension? How does this work? Fact: Strategic Partners pay money , the corporate network is less transparent than I thought. Take the time to read and understand , you will need them.

And we?

In your interest: we finance ourselves exclusively on advertising in the form of Adsense (barely existent) or our banner marketer, which are sometimes more sometimes appears (depending on order) less. This advertisement is not in the text, this is trouble-free to read.

In the past it was way before ever, that the German operator of an AdBlock block list navigation of our blogs was much changed arbitrarily, that a bottom (containing advertising) was not more to see. Say it is not blocked advertising but a part of our navigation, pointing to the bottom of this. Not the point. Adblock had at the time decided not to extradite annoying advertising, who has the AdBlock release can be viewed here .

55 percent of our readers use an adblocker. Flattr, PayPal and Co. I do not need to introduce here that has not even served in earlier experiments for an ice cream in the evening. I run this blog full time 12-14 hours a day – 7 days a week – without exception, two other people are also paid for the creation of free content from the revenue of this blog. So I can pay the guys and also still finance my life, I work currently free at Deutsche Messe AG, getgoods and also at Klarmobil. That I may live my hobbies and my dream.

No this is not a whine, but only information from me to you.
