Editors' Review

If ad blocking is the hacksaw of Internet-protecting add-ons, Do Not Track Plus (DNT+) is a finely honed katana, slicing out tracking behaviors embedded in sites without destroying the modern Web.

It's cross-browser and cross-platform, and will work in Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Safari. An Opera version is in the works. DNT+ blocks sites and ads from tracking you, unless you give them explicit permission to do so. For most sites, it actually rebuilds tools like social-networking buttons on the fly so you can still get your social on without sacrificing privacy or site load times. It also blocks ad networks and companies from following you around the Web.

DNT+ installs as a browser toolbar button. The icon reflects the number of tracking blocks against the site you're viewing. Click the button and a drop-down window appears with trackers separated into three categories: social buttons, ad networks, and companies. If there's something marked verboten that you want back, like a Twitter button, clicking it will resurrect it. Otherwise, the links at the bottom of each section take you to sites that explain what the add-on is doing and why it's doing it. This is smart, helpful stuff.

The interface is clean if a bit cluttered with the verbiage necessary to explain what it's actually doing. The add-on's On/Off button could be bigger, too. Its features work well, with no noticeable lag times when loading sites. In fact, the only feature hang-up was that on some sites, the social networking buttons weren't re-rendered. It's easy enough to go into the add-on and reactivate them, but it is an imperfect implementation of a core feature.

If you're aware of the serious privacy risks on the Internet today, but looking for something more nuanced than an ad blocker or JavaScript killer that still lets you experience the modern Web, Do Not Track Plus lives up to its value-added name.

"Excellent Freeware"

July 18, 2012  |  By Tenn-Wiskey

 |  Version: Do Not Track Plus for IE (32-bit) 2.2.0.514

Pros

I installed it on Internet Explorer 32 and 64bit versions also FireFox. Do Not Track Plus does what it says I didn't change any settings left them at default others might want to change settings to play around with it. When you open Internet Explorer you will notice a green balloon click on it you will see how many companies,ad networks and social networks are tracking you. But Do Not Track Plus blocks these you will see the numbers of trackers in the balloon you will see the balloon turn red. You will get metals for how many tracking attemps you block the metals are just for fun. Abine says Do Not Track Plus will always be freeware I sure hope so.

Cons

Been using Version 2.2.0.514 for a month no problems

Summary

This is a freeware that works 100% everybody should have Do Not Track Plus installed no matter if you use Internet Eplorer,FireFox the list goes on and on you shouldn't be disappointed. For extra privacy try Start Page as your homepage.
