My Reviews

Ghostery

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks anon regarding the explanation of the packed .js file (it's a data file that can be restored to original state).

Regarding the issue of the license, at http://code.google.com/p/ghostery/ is mentions GPLv2. The problem is that the author should follow the guidance of GPL and
1. include 'COPYING' in the source code.
2. Mention GPL in each source file.

For more on this steps, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

This may sound secretary work, but it's very important. Also allows to say: got a problem? fix and send over a patch :-). It's free software.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2). 

Ghostery

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's an extension, meaning that you can find the source code in your ~/.mozilla/firefox/ profile.

Two concerns: The author indeed omitted to add references to the GPL or other open-source licenses. Thus, currently you cannot touch the code.

One of the javascript files is obfuscated, specifically the firefox@ghostery.com/chrome/content/ghostery-bugs.js file.
My concern would be why this file is obfuscated.
