O'Reilly: Which was an open source. Lewis: Yeah. It's totally free, there's suggested donation to support the developer Michael Gundlach. O'Reilly: Have you ever donated? Lewis: I have not. No. I shamelessly downloaded it as a teenager. That was my copout. I was a teenager. I don't need to pay for anything. O'Reilly: Right. Lewis: Then there's Adblock Plus, also free, and while their names are extremely similar, they are independently operated; no connection. The big difference is -- as I understand it -- AdBlock is totally ad free, and Adblock Plus has 'white listed' ads, which is something we'll touch on later in the show. ... Google has a 'white list agreement' with Adblock Plus and a couple advertisers -- notably -- -- Microsoft and Amazon -- have that as well. Adblock Plus has these 'approved' ad providers. O'Reilly: Okay. Lewis: They're approved because they're supposedly 'non-intrusive'. They're not as disruptive for your online experience. Adblock Plus reportedly gets a 30% commission on ads served up through its White List Provider program. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/06/29/how-adblock-extensions-are-draining-google-incs-re.aspx
