Ad Hacker 0.7 Requires Restart
by Mike Prince
About this Add-on
Advertisers and publishers want to know more about you, so they track your Internet browsing with web bugs, beacons, and cookies hidden in your web pages.
This add-on lets you see who is following you around and how they are doing it. For each tracker there is a description of who they are, what they do, and potential risks to you.
Ad Hacker is a fast and easy way to see which servers and files a web page is accessing, as well as the cookies being passed back and forth.
Ad Hacker lets you program your own rules for finding web bugs. You can create your own using raw XML, or use the web interface at http://rules.adhacker.com/ to create, test, package, and distribute.
THE HUNT IS ON!
I've already walked down the top 25 sites in Alexa and found most of the web bugs on their homepages. If you'd like to help I'd really appreciate it :)
I still have to add more rules for the web bugs and flesh out the site, but I'm submitting this now because I know it may take some time to review ;)
