Blackfish Software

IE Tab was developed by Blackfish Software in 2009. Blackfish Software is a software development company that is based in Redmond, Washington and has been in business since 2003.

We have developed a variety of desktop and mobile applications, but we are now focused almost exclusively on developing, maintaining, and supporting IE Tab.

Don Schmitt (President, Founder)

Don worked as a one-man team for Blackfish Software for a number of years, developing a variety of products that included GPS applications for the early Pocket PC and Palm Pilot platforms, a game for the Windows platform, a variety of software utilities, web applications for social networks, and in 2009 IE Tab for Chrome.

Before founding Blackfish Software, Don spent ten years at Microsoft where he last worked as a lead over a team of developers building infrastructure components for Windows XP. He celebrated the shipment of Windows XP by leaving Microsoft to start Blackfish Software, which has been his focus ever since.

Besides running Blackfish Software, Don is still a full-stack software developer who escapes paperwork as often as he can to get his hands dirty working on IE Tab.
