Ads were blocked - no problem. But keep in mind that developing HeidiSQL, user support and hosting takes time and money. You may want to send a donation instead. free from web bugs

Recently I tried out Google Analytics on for 2 weeks - nice statistics, really. But for sporadic statistics I thought that it's not worth giving each and every visitor a cookie and some dubious JavaScript, spying out several personal information. So I removed the Analytics webbug again now.

Additionally we had a Ohloh badge somewhere at the bottom of the page. I decided to also remove that, although that didn't send a cookie, but slowed down page loading significantly, and it seemed not to be of much interest.

So I am proud to have free of web bugs again. Of course, that doesn't apply to the ads at the very top of the page besides the HeidiSQL logo.

Btw, if you're worried about your privacy online, the Ghostery Firefox plugin is definitely for you.
