Donation request worded more clearly

I just installed adblock. And the first screen that pops up was the donation screen. I was a little unsure if this is the app for me as I just installed it. It did state that it was free on chrome store as well. I did proceed with a small donation as I have only heard good things about your app.


  1. Give folks at least a few days before showing that screen for donation. At least we have seen what your app can do. I do understand that we can opt out nonetheless.

  2. If the donation screen is to be shown after the installation, provide a option to remind the user after X number of days. That way they feel better that they are given a choice to get back to the author after trying out the app.

Thanks! Oh, I tested a number of sites I frequent and its amazing. Never thought the ads could have that must impact on the speed of my browsing even on a fast machine....

    Hi Oliver,

    First, thanks for your payment, and we're glad you're loving ad-free browsing! Second, thanks for your suggestion. It's something we're trying, as a matter of fact, although not all users are seeing it yet.
