About this Add-on
Have you ever wanted more money to be spent on improving human longevity -- making people who are soon likely to die live longer? Making the money help as many people as possible?
Ads Fund was designed for that purpose: take money from a very profitable big business, and put that money into improving human longevity.
The big business? Advertising. Currently, advertising earns Google over $15bn every year.
How does it work? Ads Fund will sell its own adverts, dedicating 50% of profits to fund work to improve human longevity. If a person has the Ads Fund Firefox add-on installed, it will show a green button if there are ads for a page a user is viewing. Ads may be shown for Google searches, Youtube videos, Youtube generally, or Twitter pages. Users would have control: ads would only be shown if a user clicked on the green button.
The 'golden' button is shown if there are ads on the central ad list that everyone can see without having to search or use one of the other supported services.
It's early in Ads Fund's history. But already, Ads Fund has over 60 users per day from over 20 different countries, and over 1200 total downloads of the add-on. Downloads continue, and you can help too.
Opt-in, and keep the add-on installed to show advertisers you want to see ads!
Now also available for Google Chrome.

The information sent to Ads Fund is limited to what is necessary to understand the search: for Google searches it is the text of the query, for Youtube videos it is the video code, for non-specific Youtube web pages it is a signal that you are viewing such a page, and for Twitter usernames it is the username text.
The information is sent unencrypted.
Any searches that happen more than 50 times a day may be published under a no-copyright license in the public domain. All searches are recorded without reference to any additional specific-searcher-related information, and may be stored indefinitely without the intention of this information becoming accessible to anyone other than Ads Fund's owner(s) and staff under a agreement to never disclose the information except under the terms of this agreement.
For people buying links, Ads Fund records Paypal IDs, IP addresses, times of purchase actions, and requires Paypal users to be verified. Ads Fund's owner(s) may use any of this information to resolve legal issues, and may also provide this information to any legal authorities.
For people using the Ads Fund link creation software, one file directory ('adsfund' in your Firefox profile directory) and two text files (links.txt and processed.txt) may be stored on your computer, and will persist after you remove the add-on. You can check the contents of these files to see what they contain (information about links you store on your computer, and links you have processed).
The add-on is designed to only connect to servers on the server.adsfund.org domain, and only have access to files related to the function of Ads Fund. The add-on also has access to your system clipboard, which is only used to allow traditional copy and paste functions in the software.
