Why was Flagfox created?
The Internet is a complex place and Flagfox lets you know where you're actually connecting to. I created a system of Flagfox actions to make it easier to find out even more about a site. A virus check, whois record, or dot on a map is now only a click or two away. You can read a brief history of how Flagfox came to be here. You can read more information on the developer of Flagfox and the developer of Geotool here.
What's next for Flagfox
Flagfox is a single programmer project. It's not a company; it's just me, sitting here on my couch with an old laptop. Every line of code inside Flagfox is my work, which I usually say I do "in my spare time", though it tends to consume large swaths of it. I hope to continue to be able to release monthly IP location database updates and occasional major feature updates as I have done so for the past six years.
You can check up on the current state of Flagfox development on my blog or by following me on Twitter:

I do not receive any revenue from ads on the external actions included in Flagfox, in fact I generally recommend users consider using Adblock Plus. (though adding an exception for Geotool might be worth considering) You can support the continued development of Flagfox by making a small contribution using PayPal via the "Contribute" button near the top of this page. All contributions are graciously accepted, though I would generally recommend not donating very small amounts because you end up just donating to PayPal due to their high fees. (unfortunately, Mozilla does not allow competing contribution methods at this time) Every little bit does really help, so thank you VERY much to all those who have chipped in a little bit to support me.
Flagfox is and will always be free, however my hope is that a generous portion of its user-base is willing to contribute to supporting its continued development into the future.
