If you're like me (aren't you lucky), then you might not have considered this topic of tracking too much. I mean, that's the price we pay for being on the internet, right? Well advertising, maybe, just like television but behind-the-scenes snooping? No sir, not what I signed up for. Have you noticed a trend in the advertising you've been seeing? Recent visit to a airline to buy a ticket? Now you have discounted ticket ads popping up. Cooking sites? See ads for weight loss and cooking magazines. And so on. If you notice that the advertising is hitting too close to home, that may be a sign that some companies already know the places you've been. Kind of creepy, huh?
If you install this little deterrent, you will notice a green badge on the icon with the number of trackers it has blocked during the current browsing session. You can click on the icon to learn what types of companies they are and optionally allow them to track you if choose to. And isn't that what it's all about? Choice? What do you think? Do you see the dark shadow of big-brother looming in front of you?
