Albine Add-ons (DNT+, Privacy Suite, TACO) Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Albine Add-ons (DNT+, Privacy Suite, TACO): Which is the right one for you?
I did some comparison with the three and off hand I am not seeing any difference between Privacy Suite and TACO as far as features go. See images below:
Taco Menu: http://bayimg.com/PamcNaadn
Privacy Menu: http://bayimg.com/pAMCPAadn
DNT+ Menu: No menu (there is however a settings screen for unblocking http://bayimg.com/iaMFdaaDn)
Taco Options: http://bayimg.com/aamDbaADN
Privacy Options: http://bayimg.com/aaMdCAADN
Taco Pref: http://bayimg.com/AAMDEaADN
Privacy Pref: http://bayimg.com/AaMDGAaDN
Taco Pop-up: http://bayimg.com/aamDiAaDN
Privacy Pop-up: http://bayimg.com/AaMDJaadN
DNT+ Pop-up: http://bayimg.com/aamdmAADn (this images is compared to Priv Suites.
Comparing the above with DNT+, DNT+ is the version I would describe as "no assembly required". Privacy Suite (going on a limb aka TACO replacement) would be described as "Assembly Required, advanced users only model". What it appears Albine has done with DNT+/Privacy Suite is combine the functionality of AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, and BetterPrivacy.
The following image shows a snapshot of Albine DNT+ with AdBlock+ installed/enabled. As you can see AdBlock+ blocked everything except the facebook icon: http://bayimg.com/IAmFfAadn. In this image you will see all items AdBlock+ removed http://bayimg.com/MaMfOAadn.
Based on just this single site test I would not recommend soley relying on DNT+ or Privacy Suite. If you are not so tech savy I would suggest using DNT+ in conjunction with AdBlock+ (at least on filter, personally I would go with all three Fanboy's filters). Ghostery should not be needed since DNT+ should block any remainder that AdBlock+ does not get (i.e. facebook icon in the case of cnn.com)
For the technically savy people I would stick with AdBlock+, NoScript, & RequestPolicy. RequestPolicy is a very powerful blocker. In this image it blocked nearly everything except the favicon and something dealing with weather; http://bayimg.com/KAmfpAaDn).
It would be nice to have an all-in-one but just not going to happen at this time. DNT+/Privacy Suite appears to be heading in the right direction.
