I have a major suggestion. When you go to AdBlock in the Google app store, it says the app is free. It is only AFTER you download it that you are hit with a pop-up screen asking you to pay for it on the "honor" system. I think this is very deceptive on your part. Either the app is free for use or it's not. And if it's not, then state it right up front before people go to the trouble of downloading it.

Thank you.

    AdBlock is free - donations are always optional. Unfortunately, the Chrome Web Store only allows us to list it as free, or to pay a set amount through Google Wallet. As we want to allow people to donate whatever they want (even nothing, if they can't afford to!), so we have no choice but to use our current system, as Google have no built-in support for "donation-ware" or "honor-ware" extensions.

    Apologies for the misunderstanding.
