Adblock Plus And Flattr Allow Users To Donate Money To Websites

Adblock and Flattr seem to think this is a great idea. The question is, do YOU like the idea? I can totally see this working for people that would rather spend a few bucks a month not to see ads while supporting their favorite websites in the process.

Instead of manually funding individual pieces of content (Flattr requires manually hitting a button to contribute money for an article, podcast, song, video, game, and so on), you simply set a monthly budget for all the content you consume. Flattr Plus then uses an algorithm to automatically apportion your budget based on which websites you engaged with the most during that month (you can override this if you want to decrease or increase your budget, give a specific site a larger percentage, and so on).
