Ghostery for Firefox by raistlin

Following a suggestion from a friend on another forum I tried Ghostery, an add-on for Firefox and I have to say that I can recommend it.

It knocks out all the nuisance advertising and tracking on web pages. You know the stuff I mean, where you say, visit a web-page on Armenian goat herding and then forever and a day you get adverts offering you cut-price Armenians, cut-price goats etc.

Since I've started using it I haven't seen another in-page advert :)

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

I have been using it for a while now Paul on Jürgen's recomendation and as you say well worth it and a bit of an eye opener to see what it tracks

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Must say Adblock works well on FF for me!

On occasion I might log on to a site using IE, that I normally visit with FF, and then the ads take me by surprise!
