The Ethical Ad Blocker

by Darius Kazemi, Sep 15, 2015

People in media have been hand-wringing over ad blockers for many years now, but it's been back in the news recently because iOS9 now allows ad blocking in Safari. The issues remain the same, though:

Fortunately I've developed a simple solution. The Ethical Ad Blocker is a Chrome extension that, when it detects advertising on a website, blocks the entire website. This way, the user doesn't experience ads, but they also don't leech free content.

Everybody wins. Download it today!

(The Ethical Ad Blocker is a fork of the open source project Adblock Plus. I had to put its code online for GPLv3 compliance reasons. I'm sorry in advance.)
