Surfbar Update in Google Chrome

Due to a change in the browser structure, the use of the Surfbar in Chrome 60, as well as other chromium-based browsers, could not be ensured.

The surfbar has been updated for these major browsers and the following innovations go into effect:

  • From now on, the surfbar will be used through the surfbar helper.
  • The surfbar helper opens itself, when the surfbar is started through the dashboard (surf now) or through the discover -button on an interest area (Animals & Pets, Cars & Motorcycles).

Note
: No changes haven been applied to Mozilla Firefox or other versions of Google Chrome.

Our developers will now focus on the development of the new surfbar add-on. Once, the new add-on has been released, we will inform you by newsletter and in our blog.

 

Surfbar Update

After having launched a site update, the surfbar has been restored for the Google Chrome browser. The offline testing was successful but we are currently encountring some minor difficulties on the live system.

Please note that the surfbar can temporarily be started through one of the interest areas.

Example: go to Animals & Pets and click on Discover to start the surfbar.

We are working on finishing the update and will report back once everything has been implemented.

 

Google Chrome Incident

Google Chrome users, who have updated their browser to version 60.0, are experiencing difficulties when trying to add new advertising campaigns or using the surfbar.

Our developers are currently working on a solution.

Until everything is back to normal, we recommend using one of the following free browsers:

Portal For Advertisers

Over the course of the years, eBesucher has grown considerably, as we are consistenly releasing smaller and bigger features for advertisers and users. Because of this, we have also received mixed feedback, in particular from new members who are less familiar with the platform. Those users have expressed their concern regarding the clarity and user-friendliness of eBesucher.

We have therefore started to detach the advertising section from the members area. This means that in the long run, all the relevant features regarding the management of the advertising campaigns will be shifted to the new portal for advertisers. The eBesucher members area is thus becoming slimmer and our platform will be more user-friendly.

As one of the first changes, we have shifted the feature that allows you to convert BTP into MTP (and vice versa) to the portal for advertisers. The feature is listed under orders > convert points.

You can find the portal for advertisers on Buy advertising > Manage advertising.

Important: it goes without saying that all members will continue to have access in the members area, as well as the portal for advertisers.

 

Maintenance Work on the 27th of June

We are now carrying out maintenance work on the server infrastructure. eBesucher will be unavailable between 1:00pm and 3:30pm (CET+2).

Thank you for your patience!

Ebesucher Add-on Compatibility

eBesucher add-on

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Users of Mozilla Firefox, who have updated their browser to the latest version (54.0 or higher), are currently experiencing difficulties with the eBesucher add-on. Whilst the addon remains installed, it is no longer displayed in the browser interface. This incident encourages us in our aim to develop a new and better add-on. Within the upcoming days, our developers will therefore intensify their efforts in processing this task. We will announce the release of the new add-on via newsletter.

As for now, in order to continue using the addon, you have several options:

  1. Run the add-on in Firefox Portable 53.0. Firefox Portable is a portable browser version that does not need to be installed and which offers the same features as the normal Firefox. You can use Firefox Portable together but not simultaneously with any other Firefox version of your choice.

  2. Uninstall Firefox 54. Next, install Firefox 53 and deactivate automatic updates.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us!

eBesucher is back online

eBesucher has yesterday been offline for several hours, as one of our main servers has failed. Unfortunately and for several reasons, the maintenance has taken longer than expected.

We apologize for the incident! eBesucher is now back online.

 

eBesucher Social Login

eBesucher now provides a social login to its members! By linking your eBesucher account, you can easily access the members area through a social network of your choice. The following networks are available: Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn.

Those who have not yet created an account on eBesucher, can easily sign up through one of the above mentionned social networks.

Below two examples on how to process on Facebook.

Connect Existing Account With Facebook

  • Go to the members area on User Data > Profile.
  • Look out for Social Login and go on Facebook.
  • If you are not yet logged in, you will be redirected, so that you can log in on Facebook.
  • Your eBesucher account is now connected with Facebook and you no longer have to log in on Facebook seperately!

Connect New Account Through Facebook

  • Go to the eBesucher login and click on Sign up with Facebook.
  • If you are not yet logged in, you will be redirected, so that you can log in on Facebook.
  • Click on the button Sign up now.
  • The following form will take over the data from Facebook. Simply proceed by confirming our terms and conditions and the confirmation email, that is all!

 

 

HTML5 Replaces The Flash Player

HTML5 has finally replaced the Flash Player from Adobe and most browsers do no longer support the Flash plugin.

We have therefore applied some changes and optimized the connection test of the surfbar. As of now, we will run a quick test in Javascript which verifies whether the Flash plugin is installed. This allows us to drastically shorten the connection test and to load the surfbar much faster.

A huge advantage for all surfbar users: Most browsers automatically support HTML5 automatically and never require to install any plugins.

Final remark: In order to increase your earnings in the surfbar, we strongly recommend using the eBesucher Add-on for Mozilla Firefox.

Christmas Greetings 2016

The final month of 2016 comes to a close and like every year, we would like to take this opportunity to review the development of the eBesucher community.

Review

A lot has happened this year. eBesucher has been further developed and new features have been implemented, which has created new opportunities to users and advertisers alike. In addition, our developers have consistently optimized the portal, which leaves us well equipped for the years to come. Have a look at a chronological review of the most important events of the outgoing year:

March

April

  • Protection Against Framebreakers
    The dashboard verifies whether the surfbar has been interrupted by a site that loads a framebreaker. If so, it automatically restarts the surfbar.

Juin

  • Visitor Session
    The visitor session allows you to advertise many different pages to the same visitor.

August

September

  • Surfbar Upgrade
    Irrespective of the used web browser and without the help of the eBesucher add-on, the surfbar can now display websites that load a framebreaker.

December

Outlook

Our team is currently developing a new advertising method, which allows you to target new visitors and to earn additional points. This new feature must be considered as one of the major updates of the past few years. The development is in its final stage and we are happy to announce that it will be released shortly. Stay tuned!

We wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Your eBesucher Team

Merry Christmas
