Wonderful Browsing Experience Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is plugin is extraordinary and combined with AdBlock makes the browsing experience really pleasant.
I have a question however, sometimes, on the same page, when Ghostery is enabled, the number of blocked items is smaller than the number of unblocked items when Ghostery is not enabled. For example, on www.nytimes.com if Ghostery is enabled, the number of blocked items is 7, but is Ghostery is paused, the number of allowed items is 12. Does anyone know what is the explanation for this?

Thanks to Google, user privacy is comprehensively compromised on the internet. Ghostery is a nice add-on and I urge everyone to install it (Whether on Safari, Firefox or any other browser). Easy to use and to configure. Thank you sooooo much Ghostery.

Mozilla, put this in your standard builds Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really, this is a great little app and I love the redesigned user interface. It's very clear the developers listen closely to their community. I love the granularity of the rule set and ability to selectively choose per-site rules. It can be a little tricky for a novice user due to the unknown impact to forms, social networks, and where some sites just refuse to work without loosening up on the rule set a bit. I think solving that nugget will take some big brain AI work! Thanks Ghostery.

Chrome Version vs Firefox Version! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A must have extension for me, however I am a previous Chrome user...used it on Chrome all the time too, but I can't seem to find the option to disable the blocked tracker bubble popup at the upper right corner of the screen in the Firefox version which is present in the Chrome version. Do they just not have it in the Firefox version or am I not looking in the right place ?

Ghostery v. Disqus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yesterday, I wrote a review (which was answered by one of the Ghostery developers and has now disappeared), where I stated that Ghostery appeared to be interfering with Disqus. That is not the case, my apologies. The culprit appears to be HTTPS Everywhere (from the EFF).

Pretty awesome in general. Only tumblr.com seems to hate this extension. They have it so that you get logged out randomly if ghostery is enabled, and can't login again, comment or search and stuff. -_-

Hi cy, if you are a user of tmblr, then you should consider unblocking tumblr entries in the options. If you need more support, please ask on our support board: https://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/

I use Ghostery to disable Google Analytics on the websites I develop so that me accessing the sites 1000 times a day doesn't mess with the results in the analytics!

Everything worked great until yesterday, where Ghostery prevented redirects. For example:

<?php header("Location: http://google.com"); ?>

All of my redirects stopped working- it took a day of tearing my hair out before I figured out that disabling Ghostery would fix the problem. Please fix this so that I can re-enable Ghostery!

Hi Chris, Ghostery also prevents redirects in certain cases, and this is an advanced option in the Ghostery Options. If you need more detailed answer, please proceed to our support board at https://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/

Always on the job (?) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since you can't prove a 'negative', I don't know if Ghostery is blocking all the trackers and cookies it encounters. However, it always alerts me that it's stopping some - frequently, many - and I'll take that. I like the new options that allow you to globally block/unblock a site and the site-specific blocking and the whitelisting. It gives the user the ability to 'fine tune' the options rather than being on or off. Thank you Jose and Felix for the improvements. Go, Go, Ghostery! (OK, I know that's awful.)
