AdBlock sold to a mystery buyer

AdBlock has been flogged off to a mystery buyer – and our sources have pointed to Adblock Plus as the shy purchaser.

Such a move that would double the scope of Adblock Plus’s empire.Within its headline announcement yesterday that it had been bought by an unnamed outfit, AdBlock said it is now participating in German competitor AdBlock Plus’ Acceptable Ads program, which sets the criteria for whether publishers and websites can be unblocked by its filter.

Well that sucks. I’ve been telling people to install Adblock, and not Adblock Plus, for years. Off to try uBlock.
