Editors' Review

DoNotTrackMe for Firefox gives you control over your online experience with its vital security features and privacy options, though this may come at the price of reduced browsing speed. DoNotTrackMe's unobtrusive design makes it easy to use, and its blocking tools are some of the best on the market.

Pros

Helpful and informative: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox offers explanations for why services are being blocked and how they may be harmful. This helpful app even tells you, in its online guide and blog, how to secure your identity through other means.

First-rate toolkit: The software has its customizable blocking options and a suggestion tool, so you can personalize DoNotTrackMe to fit your browsing needs. We noted that the email masking feature performed as expected and did not cause any delay in receiving messages.

Engaging design: The DoNotTrackMe add-on and website are both well-built and attractive, mainly due to the innovative, infographic-style layout. The quick options list from the application's drop-down menu is a breeze to navigate.

Cons

Hinders speed: Using DoNotTrackMe for Firefox seemed to slow down our browser considerably, even with all other add-ons disabled. The application accomplished its goals, but we are unsure why our browsing experience was hampered by the sluggishness of this program.

Bottom Line

DoNotTrackMe is reliable, helpful, and well-built, but its slowness may inhibit your browsing. While this is a great program, incorporating more features like Disconnect's private search would make DoNotTrackMe more desirable. Regardless, we see very few problems with this add-on and recommend installing DoNotTrackMe if you want protect your personal information.

"Was OK as DoNotTrackMe, now it's cumbersome!"

 |  Version: Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) for Firefox 4.7.1518

Pros

None any more...

Cons

Disposable Credit Cards!!! This means that Albine Inc acts like a middle man (akin to PayPal). This means a total loss of Section 75 Credit Card protection (In the UK at least). Doing this is a retrograde step!!

Summary

If I could have been able to turn off all the new features so that it behaved like the old DoNotTrackMe, then I would have kept using it. However it seemed hell bent on producing popups whenever I was trying to pay by Credit Card, of which I couldn't seem to disable. Now uninstalled...

"I Liked It When It was Do Not Track Me"

 |  Version: Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) for Firefox 4.7.1518

Pros

I am trying so hard to think of one.

Cons

I liked the Do Not Track Me extension. However, in attempting to do many things, does nothing well and has become obnoxiously intrusive. I can't even sign into a website if I haven't logged in to Blur! ***

"Bad commercial attitude and decision"

 |  Version: Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) for Firefox 4.7.1518

Pros

Don't want to know 1

Cons

Unacceptable to me : Blur tries to provide a service possibly comparable to my RoboForm (without a disable option) and prevents me from using only the DoNotTrackMe features that I appreciated. So,... out the window, like Smile that killed Webshots.
