May work but poorly designed, even without comparing to alternatives. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure how effective it is but the interface is poor, very annoying and confusing as has been mentioned.

Just by looking at it you don't know if something is being allowed or blocked, one can only presume as there is no definite feedback.

One can only expand one "group" at a time causing others to collapse so you can't get a good look at everything in one go.

It doesn't have any options so one can't for example set it to not automatically refresh pages once you block/unblock something, and since there's no pausing block/allow ALL, the page will continually and repeatedly reload in the background while the user runs around expanding groups having to click on a checkbox for every single thing listed if they want to pause or disable it on a page to check if it's the source of a problem with a site or page. Thankfully one can whitelist a site but some could easily end up forgetting that they've whielisted something it if they were just testing so an option to pause the addons blocking would be an improvement.

It has bizarre scroll buttons at the top and bottom, which one has to hover over to use, would be a nightmare if all scrolling worked like that instead of simply using the mouse scroll wheel.

It always displays useless time/bandwidth saved claims, which does nothing but take up screen space and of course using resources to keep track of this.

Even the little counter number it displays on it's icon is flawed in that it registers as part of the browser window rather than part of the icon so when clicking the icon one has to avoid clicking the number covering part of it.

I don't know who designed the interface for this but it is in many ways a great example of how not to do thing ranging from user friendliness to efficiency via sensibility.

fake/shareware? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

on the site it says that free version only shows the trackers, only the premium will block them

is there any point in using this if you don't allow third-party cookies?

Confusing UX - does green mean blocked or unblocked? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Confusing UX - does green mean blocked or unblocked? The F.A.Q. states that "[icons are] shown separately to make them easy to block or unblock". So what is it?!? Are they blocked or unblocked?

Not a true Ghostery replacement yet. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Believe me, I really really really want to replace Ghostery and it's dishonest developers. The issue here is it still is lacking in some functionality. With some modest improvements it could really do it though.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Compared Disconnect and Ghostery. Prefer Disconnect. Visualization needed in the addon for Firefox ( Has it in the Chrome version) otherwise it works great.

USED to be the BEST
Found out that ADOBE was sending information to businesscatalyst.com and I did block it on my router but now, IT SUCKS. I can NOT goto Walmart.com it FREEZES it. It changed, need a version BEFORE JAN 15,2015 and DISABLE AUTO UPDATE. This sucks now, Ghostery is better

Keeps adding itself back to the toolbar after I remove it.

It should be easy to uninstall Disconnect by going to about:addons and removing Disconnect. Do you have any desktop applications that install Disconnect installed?

I'm not sure what you mean - it should be easy to uninstall Disconnect by going to about:addons and removing Disconnect without reinstalling Firefox.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Liked it! Love the all in one app focused on lightness, speed and gives us lot of control and information in a beautiful interface. Also open-source!
BUT it doesn't hides add elements (which is very important in most sites) and somehow I've been getting lots of popups and still lots of adds :/ Also the buggy thing with the menu with Firefox 35 update.
I have big hopes for this extension. For now I might use another one. Since it is constantly evolving and with good principles, it might become the must have in every browser.

Very Cool and nessesary... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Tool - works fantastic. It use 0.97 MB in firefox and works in the background without mistakes. The counters are great and are very interesting, because I can see, which websites steal my lifetime. Only the window could be bigger on size...

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works very well and I am glad to have found it. However, ever since I updated to Firefox v34, I have noticed that the add-on randomly stop responding. It will suddenly stop showing the count of blocked requests and indeed stops blocking these. I need to disable the add-on, restart FF, enable the add-on and restart FF again in order to get it working again, which is not always fine cause sometimes I have important tabs open and it becomes inconvenient to do this. I hope they fix this.

Currently using FF v35, and it exhibits the same problem.

No longer working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Whatever value Disconnect had, it has lost. I tried to visit walmart.com this morning and Firefox froze. Had to close FF via Task Manager. After some experimentation, I found that disabling Disconnect brought back walmart.com.

I would try to whitelist walmart.com - as mentioned below - but the browser is completely non-responsive and I can't even click on the Disconnect icon to do so.

Not so good as that lifehacker review Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've used disconnect for some while, and there are some reasons that I've switched to ghostery.

First, On firefox 35, the button is crazy. The popup is very small (30or so pixels) and the dixplay doesn't show.

Second, I used this in Opera once. The opera addon has more features. I HATE ADDONS THAT HAVE DIFFERENT FUNCTIONALITY PER BROWSER

Third, The icon doesn't display itself in customizing.

Fourth, DISCONNECT FINDS LESS TRACKERS THAN GHOSTERY! Open-Source doesn't matter, it's the FUNCTIONALITY!

Fifth, YOU GET SPAMMED?!
When you install this and restart, a disconnect page shows up asking for donation. THEN MAKE A PREMIUUM FOR GOODNESS SAKE! I HATE SPAM!

For now, ghostery is a GOOGOL times better than this.

Spam at startup? Uninstall! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Open Firefox and get spammed by this? Automatic uninstall. I'll try an app that doesn't spam me.

And is this abandonware?

Perfect ... With some of your attention ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is really cool, I've been using it for some time now, and I really recommend it !

BUT you have to take care to "whitelist" some of your favourite sites, because the addon might not allow them to work properly.
Per instance, I haven't been able to buy something on Razer website because of that. The sites you think are less dangerous (take a look at the addon to see if there are many threats or just a few) can be "whitelisted" in order to let them work properly.
If you encounter any problem with a website, try whitelisting it, it may work again !
