Ghostery - Firefox
sees the "invisible" web, detecting trackers, web bugs, pixels, and beacons placed on web pages by Facebook, Google Analytics, and over 1,000 other ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers - all companies interested in your activity.
After showing you who operates behind the scenes, Ghostery
allows you to block scripts from companies that you don't trust, delete local shared objects, and even block images and iframes.
also includes the optional, opt-in feature called Ghostrank, which sends Ghostery
servers anonymous information about the trackers you encounter and where you encounter them. This allows us to create a more comprehensive list of detectable items, and helps us create a more transparent behavioral advertising ecosystem through our partnership with Evidon.
