State of the art for protect your privacy without compromise web surfing in a considerable way. If you decide what to want to release about your web-story this is the app for you.

Once again there are problems ..... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I certainly appreciate the efforts of the devs but just like it did a few versions back, Ghostery now screws up Firefox (v30.0) ROYALLY. With today's newest release (7/4/2014 ..... v5.3.2) Firefox memory usage now skyrockets, the browser freezes up and becomes completely unusable, and the only way to shut it down is to kill the process in (W7) Task Manager. I'll be going back to version 5.3.1 for the time being, and until a more stable version is released, - and I recommend that other users do the same.

Note to the devs - it's far more important that users are kept up-to-date HERE than for me to go post these issues at Ghostery support - which I'm not the least bit interested in signing up for.
Looking forward to your next release. Thanx.

In addition .....
1) Ghostery was the only extension that I updated today so the problems I mentioned above are in no way due to any conflicts with other extensions or plugins.
2) After (uninstalling Ghostery and) going back to using Ghostery v5.3.1 all is well - which of course confirms that the problem is specific to version 5.3.2.

And as this really has been a great extension overall, I will still be looking forward to the next release - but make it a STABLE one please !
Thanx.

great app

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful and unobtrusive. Combined with No Script, FlashBlock and AdBlock Plus, one can enjoy surfing with less fear and paranoia. These are small things we can do to protect the privacy of our data!

Simple to use. Effective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this plugin. It is easy to use and it works well.
the like the Whitelist option for sites I know I can trust.

Great addon, but i was forced to remove it and use Disconnect instead, for as long as i used Ghostery there was a bug where it did not scan the page and didnt block anything, i never really knew why or how but it was greyed out and not blocking until i refreshed the page

Все фотографии используемые на других сайтах из facebook удаляются, было бы неплохо, чтобы вы имели свой кэширующий сервер и показывали эти фото. Таким образом и приватность сохранится и фото будут.

Consider This A Required Addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Being that I've been using this for several years now, I should put some due diligence in and post a review.

I've tried a few of the different addons that block trackers, modules and other trash that companies use to monetize their traffic these days.

What's all that lead to? Well, it leads to you consuming more bandwidth and generating more traffic. A lot of the trash involves your browser going out to here, there and everywhere to run additional code, download additional code, and just consume resources that will, 99 times out of 100, only benefit the site/company you're visiting.

Consider this addon the consumer response to the claims that web-oriented businesses must track everything, everywhere at all times. Take your devices back, you wonder why a few hours of browsing with Firefox has your browser pegged at near a gigabyte of ram consumption, this will help.

As a sidebar, some companies, albeit greedy ones, will nest different trash within other trash. Sites like that will not function correctly using Ghostery... if for some reason you still need that site in your life, you can manually enable individual trash/ad/tracking/etc packages till the site plays nicely with firefox. Or you can temporarily disable blockage till you get what you need. You can also whitelist sites which ghostery won't touch but will continue to block everything else requested.

And in addition to trash blockery, this addon will also do away with flash (as well as microsoft's answer to flash, whatever its called) cookies on exit if the option is enabled.

If I had to find or indicate a problem with Ghostery, after this many years I'm hard-pressed to do as such. The only thing that's odd, I wouldn't even consider it a problem per-say, but the way that some of these websites look with the trash blocked, some of the sites I frequent, there isn't much left to see once all their profiteering efforts are suppressed. It would be nice if Ghostery could develop an algorithm that would replace blocked elements with... blank elements or maybe ghostery elements (much in the way Ghostery blocks the social media buttons, but still displays a Ghostery version of where they are located in the layout), that allow visited sites more of an ability to keep their appearance.

Here's why I strongly approve of Ghostery Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A new tracker was revealed today (by Ghostery). I have them all automatically blocked. Here's the information available for this Tracker that wants all your browsing habits and any personal information it can glean:

very simple to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is very easy to use. You can see list of sites (and their types like "ads", "analytics", "social") that track you and you can select ones that you want to block. Great.

This is a great application, and I would like to thank the developers for being so thorough. Also, I would like to thank them for access to the information on who is tracking us. Great Job Folks, keep up the Much Needed work in this area. Also, the Behavioral tracking/pushing Is so very relavent to a consumers security, I hope you expand your development in this area. Can't say enough about your product, I'm also using Privacy Badger just to double check things, so far, not a single instance it's found that you haven't.
Good Luck & Stay safe.
