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.
