Great product Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm very pleased with this add-on in general. Very slick - I like the interface more than that of ghostery (although I think it could be even better if it gave you more info about the individual companies/trackers that it blocks). I've noticed that I have to continually re-block the google +1 button, but I'm assuming that has something to do with my cookieculler settings so I'm not too worried about that.

The reason I gave it four stars is that it seems like ghostery blocks more trackers. I did a quick comparison on salon.com and found that ghostery blocks more companies (parse.ly, 24/7 real media, and scorecard research beacon).

Here is the list of what ghostery blocks, ([X] means DNT+ blocks it as well):

24/7 real media
chartbeat [X]
facebook connect [X]
facebook social plugins [this may be blocked by DNT+ as well, just not listed separately]
google +1 [X]
google analytics [X]
parse.ly
quantcast [X]
scorecard research beacon
share this [X]

EDIT: thanks for the quick response. I probably should have mentioned this in my review, but I compared the site with 1) ghostery enabled and DNT+ disabled, and then 2) DNT+ enabled and ghostery disabled.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.6).
