block web trackers Ghostery is a browser add-on for Firefox that enables you to see what kind of tracking techniques are used by the current website, including tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. The program also comes with the option to block any of these elements, including advertising, cookies, analytic trackers, social widgets and more. You can choose which items to block and also add sites to a Whitelist to exclude them from getting blocked. Ghostery adds a new toolbar button to the browser toolbar that dynamically displays the number of tracking elements on the current pages, and shows detailed information for all trackers when you click on it. You can easily enable/disable any tracker with the click of a button. Also available for Internet Explorer as well as Opera, Chrome and Safari. Copyright

Makes firefox run faster 5 stars by labman24620 Sep 17, 2015 (Read all my 6 reviews)
I use Ghostery for both my Firefox and Chrome (from Chrome addons site). It stops the tracking, shows how many it has blocked from different sites, and lets you set your options as to how you want it to look. It definitely has speeded up both Firefox and Chrome !! For me, it works better than AdBlock. show Review details
Keeping track 5 stars by gimpguy Aug 18, 2013 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
Ghostery definitely helps in blocking unwanted tracking and doesn't slow down browsing. I've been using this for some time and it's still great. Very nice to see who's watching what you're doing from sites you visit, still one of my fav add ons. show Review details
Works well for me 5 stars by Harlan Apr 20, 2013 (Read all my 56 reviews)
I use it with Pale Moon, an optimized Firefox derivative. I block all beacons, but not much else. I have never run into a problem accessing a website because of Ghostery. If you block everything, you can expect to run into problems. If you try to be very detailed in what you block, it will take a lot of time to go through the extensive lists of candidates, and you will have to keep updating what is blocked. show Review details
