Losing focus Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension used to be about blocking trackers; now, the first thing it does after installation is open a new tab that goes to a webpage to configure it (why not offline like before?), with Google Analytics, Google Fonts, and a "Cookie Consent". It gets harder and harder to configure as 99% of the users want with each revision, with dubious UI choices like removing the "select all" options.

It feels like a bait-and-switch for a long-time user like me. I cannot recommend it anymore.

Apart from that, it still works as advertised... I think...

Not a fan of the new UI (ver6 +). Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since the new V6 has come out I do not care for it or recommend it. If you are going to use I would recommend an older version of ghostery.

good tool...

Helpful & Easy to Install Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks Ghostery for providing a quick and effective browser protection solution. I was looking for something to stop me being bombarded by irrelevant ads and pop-ups, without paying through the nose. You're it!

Notification Bubble Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seemed like an okay addon however the inability to disable the oversized icon in the bottom right of my mobile screen was a deal breaker. Noticing other people have this issue without resolution forced my had to uninstall. Might reconsider installing again should this issue be revolved.

Slowing the browsing experience a lot ! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The goal of Ghostery is really interesting, but the way it turns these last months is horrible: it is slowing my browsing experience on all my computers, even with a Core™ i5-4430 i can see a huge difference with and without ghostery !
I can't remember when it began, but for sure as soon as I uninstalled it today on all my devices, i rediscovered my Firefox !

Either this code is seriously weak or there are an unusual clog of hate trolls on this review... I do not know which.

But dropping a steady feed of turds in punch bowls, as Ghostery Sucks is committed to do, doesn't nothing to illuminate proper use of Ghostery ( assuming there is any )

Better usability than completely blocking cookies Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have a great deal of redundant security/anonymity plugins, and this one fits in nicely.
The categories available help to make quicker decisions (I, for instance, like to leave comment trackers enabled) and help me to not break so many sites.
For me, it's especially nice to see that it continues to block things that I enable in the more aggressive NoScript in order to make a site load.

Pretty Solid App Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This app works really well. I use it along with adblocker, and I hardly see ads and junk that everyone wants to throw my way. Being able to restrict a page is a great feature

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Specially useful if you like your browser to request only what you need

Decent app Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like it fine enough and it usually doesn't break pages. I use it along with an ad blocker [currently ublockOrigin] and Disconnect. You have to remember that when a page isn't working right to temp-pause the blocking on this app and reload the page. A lot of folks can't seem to manage that.

Great program, easy to use and modify. Adding and changing what works at which site is easy and intuitive. Work great not much else to say.

Ghostery Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ghostery used to be a very helpful, usable add-on. I no longer recommend it to my users because it no longer tells you what you need to know. I manage IT for small businesses.

Great adblock Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great adblocker although it needs a little work seeing how it does not block ads on every website and video playback will not work if ghostery is enabled for some sites.

Cool, but new V6 GUI is terrible.

I hate version 6 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Version 6 is a real pain....
Sticking to version 5....wich is a lot better and a lot less intrusive...wich is the main reason i've installed ghostery in the first place...
