I was too optimistic. TMN only works for about two days and then it's disabled by Windows XP/FF 3.5.1. Also, v3.5.1 crashes a lot. :-(

FF3.5.1 and TMN v0.6.2a Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

There is a corrected update v0.6.2a available on the TrackmeNot web site. I installed it and using it for the past hour and it seems to work fine in FF 3.5.1 for Windows.

We need an update.

hacking TrackMeNot 0.6.2 to work on Firefox 3.5 Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

EDIT: @minidell, it worked on Windows. TrackMeNot 0.6.2 has now been approved on addons.mozilla.org to work with Firefox 3.5, apparently without any changes to the code except for install.rdf. But to make it work, you may have to "update" from 0.6.2 to 0.6.2 by uninstalling and reinstalling from the link on this page.

PRE-EDIT: Until the next official update, it is very easy to make TrackMeNot 0.6.2 compatible with Firefox 3.5. Go to your Firefox profile folder (on Windows this is probably C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\SOMETHINGRANDOM.default\ ) then to the extensions folder, then to the TrackMeNot extension which is probably titled trackmenot@mrl.nyu.edu. In this folder you will find a file called install.rdf. Right-click-and-drag to make a backup copy of it, then open the original install.rdf in a text editor (notepad will do). Look for the part that says 3.0.* and just change it to 3.5.* then save the file under the original name of install.rdf. Now restart Firefox, and TrackMeNot should be working again.

a powerful counter-attack against data-mining Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This extension does what it claims: it generates queries in a very intelligent way, making it impossible for search engines to build consistent profiles about you and then abuse that data for their own purposes. The RSS feature allows you to enter as many RSS feeds as you like, thus building a huge database of search terms that the engines cannot predict nor easily recognize as artificial. I myself have some 20 different RSS feeds entered into it, from which Trackmenot can draw useful terms that have nothing to do with my own person. My private information is thus hidden inside a cloud of nonsense that Google is welcome to have.

Deleting cookies does not protect your privacy from search engines, because they can identify you by other means, such as IP address. Besides, the deleted cookie is simply recreated every time you use the engine, and for the entire session you will then be monitored.

It is also untrue that search engines will block you. If you use this extension properly (with your own RSS feeds, and by not settting the query frequency at its highest level) you will never, ever be blocked from using the search. I've been using it for two years now and I haven't been blocked even once.

Better alternatives Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Like an other reviewer said: "In theory this is a GREAT addon. BUT google and other search engines are stopping automated searches and are trying to prevent programs like this from running. Also if you run spyware remover and antivirus and delete your cookies then third parties won't get person information instead of just hiding your searches."

A nice alternative to google is scroogle.org, uses google but: no cookies|no search-term records|access log deleted within 48 hours. There's also an SSL version(AES 256 bit) https://ssl.scroogle.org
Here's a way to install it as a Firefox search engine:

great program Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I thru some of these reviews and am amazed at the lack of knowledge on this. spyware/malware is not what this program is for. search engines do data mining and profiling based on your IP address. scanners/etc dont do anything for this. that is what this is. when google/yahoo/etc have been known to release information(for example to the CHINESE goverment, etc) then its great that someone coded a program like this to combat it. although after a while it will get you black listed with the search engines.

if you think that spyware/malware is even in the same ballpark then you need to google data mining.

I'm sorry if my english is bad but I'm Italian... I've read some of the last comments and I'm not sure that if you use another language than english, for example italian, it's works.
Someone can help me?
Thankyou very much.

Works Great Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I love the add-on. It does not slow my PC down any. As far as one reviewer's comments about turning off cookies and/or using Tor, etc. Nice in theory, but doesn't work well in practice. Many sites will not work if you turn cookies off and many others will not work when running Tor. The situation with these solutions remains that way and so I nixed both of them a long time ago. TMN is a great add-on. And benchmarking and resource usage tools I use show it is virtually no load on the machine. As far as wasting search engines resources, well if they prevented people from tracking search results the comment would be valid. But since they don't, TMN, TMN, TMN.

There are better ways Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

There are better ways to protect your privacy than wasting everyone's - not only Google's but also your ISP's etc. - capacities. Just turn off your cookies and/or use proxies or Tor

Works nicely Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Works great for me, on both FF2.x and 3.x, I've been using it for several years. Yahoo will give you errors if you query them much more than 10/hr, I've never gotten google errors (even with several computers on LAN all running TMN), so their threshold must be higher. It's really not necessary to query 10/min to muddy up your search history. TMN coexists nicely with CustomizeGoogle (to anonymize google cookies).

Lol, google is going to sue its users because they don't want to be used and abused by having their information sold? Nukka please.

I dont even see how those terms are even relevent. This isnt a webcrawler and its not making automated searches.

Besides, according to article 7, section 18, paragraph 4, line 29 of the Federation of Internet Privacy Foundation Claus it says I'm entitled to my privacy when browsing the intertubes-so HA!

Wonderful addon, would be even better if it could somehow bypass google's protection against automated searches.

(To vlkcodwnqj: Stop spreading FUD, users have the right to do whatever they want to protect their privacy. Some people may not like this, but who cares?
If everyone read and abided to all agreements that we "agree" to when we use some web resource, what kind of lives would we be living? One would wonder if it is allowed to breathe..)
