Description

Background

Now that Adblock Browser has been released, we have no more use for /en/adblock-browser, we should just redirect to adblockbrowser.org.

What to change

Redirect users that visit /en/adblock-browser to https://adblockbrowser.org. At the same time, we should get rid of now unused code.

Please also make the link on https://adblockplus.org/ link directly to https://adblockbrowser.org/.

Moreover, I think we probably should do a proper permanent redirect on the server-side, rather than using the http-equiv hack. I didn't mind using that hack on the job page, as SEO doesn't matter to much there, and we are going to remove it anyway, once we take down the job ad. But I think it would be worth doing it properly for the Adblock Browser landing page.

Again, what is with the link on the homepage? I think we should directly link to https://adblockbrowser.org/ there without a redirect.

Which link do you mean? On the landing page I only see one pointing to adblockbrowser.org, no redirects.

Alright. The page was delivered from the cache. Looks fine, when force reloading the page.
