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.
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 have just recently started accepting contributions towards the development of Flagfox for the first time in the 6 years I've been doing this. 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, or you can directly donate equipment via Amazon. Some users have requested that I work on a version of Flagfox for Mobile Firefox, and using Amazon's wish list system allows for the possibly of directly sponsoring the equipment I would need rather than only requesting abstract donations of cash.
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.
