@sergz, @simona Guys please provide text for "Learn more" section, when it's ready.

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by saroyanm

@Sven, also what you think about adding new icon right to Android ? I guess in that case we will need to shrink install button a little.

I fear that when we begin to add an icon for every Chromium based browser (and maybe also Gecko based browsers in the future), our homepage will become cluttered rather quickly, and might confuse most of out website's visitors who never heard of those browsers.

So how about showing the Yandex icon (and similar) only to visitors using that browser and to visitors from countries where those browsers are popular?

I don't think that hiding them for others is a good idea. I think the user's trust is in direct proportion to the number of supported platforms. So, I would suggest to put yandex browser, maxthon and maybe something else into special section of some "non-insanely-popular" platforms. And of course we can pick them and show immediately for users of these browsers.

I'd prefer to always show icons for the 6 large browsers/platforms, and the Yandex icon (an similar in the future) in addition, but only to users of those browsers, and maybe also to visitors from countries where those browsers are popular.

But yeah, when space is already a problem, replacing the Chrome icon for Yandex users would be an option. Anyway it's just a suggestion. I think Sven should have the final say here.

comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by simona

I dont think that replacing is the solution ... Btw there is still a space for 2 more icons on the right side (that it keeps aligned with the header).

I think it will rather confuse the average user, who never heard of those browsers. Also the main purpose of our homepage is to make people install Adblock Plus. And increasing the number of links, might turn down the conversion rate, in particular if those are irrelevant to most users.

The idea for Yandex is that we show the text "Install for Yandex" in our download button (but only for Yandex users) without any additional icon. That's it.

Should we highlight Chrome ?

comment:20 Changed 5 years ago by sven

Since it's a chrome based browser it would make sense to highlight the Chrome icon, yes. If there are any concerns, let me know.

I strongly disagree. Yes, it is based on Chrome and we know that. However, users aren't necessarily aware of it. In particular, the latest Yandex Browser stopped linking to CWS so users have one less reason to assume that it is compatible with Chrome extensions.

IMHO we should have a new https://adblockplus.org/en/yandex-browser page, similarly to how we've done it for https://adblockplus.org/en/opera. The page content should be the same, merely a different button (Install in Yandex Browser). And we should have an icon for it of course.

Replying to simona:

FYI there is a press release in Russia going out on Wednesday (19.11.).

Why the urgency all the sudden?

Switching priority while still details are missing and we have some more questions to discuss.

Ok, let's finish that by using an icon, the "Install for Yandex" button and the https://adblockplus.org/en/yandex url.

Please note that the product is called Yandex Browser, as Yandex only would refer to the company or search engine only. Please also note that its name is translated into Russian.

In general also please don't bury the description in the comments

Sorry, my fault. @trev is right with the url. It should be https://adblockplus.org/en/yandex-browser.

We are not using separate images for each browser icon, instead we need to update current sprite.
@Sven can you please provide updated sprite instead of images separately ?
