    Privacy Badger.


    Just wanted to see if everyone knows about this great browser ad-on to help keep you from being tracked on the interwebs.

    I just watched a talk given by one of the Devs from HOPE X about this and I've just installed it into my Firefox browser. Seems to play well with NoScript and Cookie Monster so I'm going to pass along this ad-on to ya'll. Anyway, I'll talk to ya' later.

    I've been using a little while and only had a couple of minor issues which is pretty good for alpha software. Then again, I don't know how much it will be doing for me as I also run adblock, noscript and block all third party cookies!
    Should you be sitting wondering,

    There's only one true answer my friend,
    It's Adam Bloody West!

    From what I've heard it's in beta now so it's suppose to be a lot better. I'm running it with NoScript and Cookie Monster and it seems to be doing ok. I like how it's kind of Automatic in the way it'll track down tracking cookies and block them from sending out data and also how it'll allow tracking cookies that you need for a web site to work but stops them from sending out data. Seems to be a pretty decent ad-on for whatever browser you're running.
    No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.
