Blur

Oops Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Been using DNT+ for over a year and loved it. Was beginning to use Blur's password generating and remembering. Started a new USPS account, had Blur originate and make a secure password. Blur now doesn't remember the password that I've never seen! That's a mega-fail and a deal breaker for me. AND you cannot ask a question on their help page of the Albine website--you only get to read FAQs, which are only thinly disguised advertisements. I know I'm not the only one who has had Blur make a password that later Blur would not remember but nary a question in the FAQs, forcing me to do a lowball review here for possible answers. Maybe two stars is too many. Sorry.

I was ready to install it on my Android phone. Not doing that now until I get some answers.

Forecastfox We Miss Ya! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always said I couldn't live without you but now I am. I'm not happy about Firefox becoming a Google Chrome wannabe either but we need you. It looks like chrome but it's still good old Firefox.

KeeFox

Often confused Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Keefox often gets confused whether Keepass is open or not. The setup screen comes up often for no particular reason and sometimes when you tell it go ahead and set up (again!) it does nothing. In spite of that Keepass is invaluable and KeeFox sometimes works correctly.

I wouldn't run Firefox without it. Absolutely ends all your password hassles with great securtiy.

Blur

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Comparing side-by-side with Ghostery. You have to turn off blocking in Ghostery because it blocks first. Then on every website Ghostery finds one or two trackers that Do Not Track Plus neither finds or blocks.

Right here, for instance, Ghostery reports Web Trends and would let me block it. Do Not Track Plus reports a clean page.

Do Not Track Plus routinely does not find trackers that the settings say are blocked.

Therefore this add-on is not ready for prime time and will leave you unprotected. Better to go with nothing than be misled. Go with Ghostery for now.

Developer, I love the way this extension is set up and I just wish it worked better. I'll continue to have it loaded and continue to compare to Ghostery to see improvements in the future.

@abine: I can't reply to the reply below so I'll edit my review. With the stated difference in companies, I'm rooting for DNT+ to continue to improve and make Ghostery a distant second best. Look forward to swapping observations with you with the aim of helping to make yours the best anti-tracker! Love it that you guys are active here in the review section and that says everything about your commitment to excellence. You may not be there yet but it's clear to see where you're going!
