Ghostery: Browser-Plugin detecting Trackers

Ghostery ist ein sehr schönes Plugin für so ziemlich alle Browser, das die Tracking-Pixel und Whatnot auf Websites anzeigt und gegebenenfalls blockt. Geht wahrscheinlich auch mit anderen Plugins, aber die haben keine Geister. Ich hab’ das Ding grade mal bei mir drüberlaufen lassen… sagen wir’s mal so: da geht einiges.

Ghostery is your window into the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.

Each of the over 500 companies has a profile that will help you learn more about their technology, their business, and their privacy policies. At Ghostery, we believe in enabling informed decisions about your control over your online privacy. The more you learn about the companies trading your online behavioral data, the better you can make decisions about how to control your exposure to those companies.

Ghostery allows zero-tolerance blocking of anything ad related, complete (visible) open communication with ad companies, or countless measures in between – determined by you, the informed web user.
