Browser Recommendation: Do Not Track Me

https://www.abine.com/dntdetail.php

Just giving people the heads up on this nice extension for IE, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. It'll prevent websites from tracking you to collect data and target you with specialize ads. If the thought of them tracking you sounds malignant, then you'll love this small little plugin.

...until you get it and realize how many times you've been tracked by various ad and statistics sites. Then it's like putting on a UV light in a seedy motel and seeing semen everywhere.

Out of all the places I visit regularly Siliconera.com was the worst tracking me with 10 different info catches. The only three places that didn't get any hits were Sankaku Complex.com, Gelbooru.com and Gmail.co.uk

Magicbox failed the test.

Location: I hated going to weddings cause all the grandmas would poke me saying "you're next, you're next". They stopped saying that when I did it to them at Funerals.

Most trackers tho are from google ads. Which most of us know about.

But gah, one site had over 30 trackers that I went to. Then I went to a porn site, over 350 trackers! Fucking porn, stop tracking my shit!
