Posted on 02/15/2012 6:37:58 AM PST by radioone
Heres fair warning to all social media data scavengers, ad tracking companies, and analytics snoops on the InterWebs: Theres a new anti-tracking sheriff in town. Online privacy company Abine Inc. last week unveiled a new browser widget called, appropriately enough, DoNotTrackPlus (because these days everything has to come with a plus sign -- thank you, Google). Ive been taking it for a spin this morning and I gotta say its pretty slick. DNT+ keeps more than 600 ad networks and other Web trackers from depositing tracking cookies on your hard drive. It also tells you who they are. Period, full stop. (However, it won't do anything about tracking cookies that have already been deposited on your computer; you'll have to manually delete those.) Everything you always wanted to know about Web tracking (but were too paranoid to ask) Abine updates Firefox add-on to block Web tracking Getting DNT+ to work is painless -- download, click Install, and youre done.

I wouldn’t know since I have never visited Drudge. But I’ll take your word for it.
Thank you and my FReepmailer. I installed and my FF seems to be a little quicker.
Google Analytics seems to pop up here on FR, crossed out. Does that mean google no longer has the ability to track my whereabouts?
I haven’t visited drudge since he started pulling for mittens.
Now I’m going to drudge to see what pops up....just for fun!
I did get a nasty virus from drudge once, from one of his links. I had to reboot my computer from day one (brand new) to get rid of it.
Wow...7 of them!
Bump fer later ....
You or my FReepmailer should start a new thread about this FF thing.
A lot of us “uninformed computer illiterates” are out there and need some help!
Very cool...Thank you!!
