Protect your privacy. See who's tracking your web browsing and block them with Ghostery.
Collector's Note does't go far enough to actually provide any security but it does show how many web bugs there are, which are easily blocked and neutralized by NoScript EDIT: in the recent release, the blocking function has been added which is a welcome step in the development; however, use with caution as some websites intertwine their functionality with these trackers and blocking it will result in loss of function, use the NoScript surrogate functionality for those sites to receive the function without the tracking - but a welcome progression in the functionality.
