Adblock Plus is currently looking into the best way to support large scale deployments of our software.
Our software can be a great asset to every company, university or system administrator working with a large IT infrastructure containing multiple working stations. Adblock Plus ensures a better browsing experience for users by blocking annoying ads. It also considerably decreases security risks and privacy risks and improves bandwidth speed.
What are large scale deployments?
When installing the Adblock Plus extension for multiple machines and user accounts, it is time consuming and tedious to perform a manual installation on each device. Administrators can utilize various tools to automate the installations, e.g. installer scripts or even configuration management software.
Any mass installation of a browser extension has to take a number of things into account, like:.
- desired browsers
- operating systems
- internal policies
- infrastructure in general
This forum serves as a feedback and support channel for any issue, a place to share success stories and a place for general discussion regarding roll-out and maintenance of Adblock Plus in administered environments.
