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.

"WOW! What can I NOT say about DNT PLUS?"

October 29, 2012  |  By aloneinelcajon

 |  Version: Do Not Track Plus for IE (32-bit) 2.2.2.1022

Pros

This DNT is awesome, work on my Internet Explorer AND Google Chrome, had it a month and already BLOCKED 18,746 sites?
Wow, NEVER knew that many people wanted a piece of the action....that's like being followed around in a jewelry store and some idiot just waiting to pounce on you when you get out the door to rob you of what you just bought, or worse case scenario...just found out where you live to follow you home and rip you off ya' know? SCARY.

Cons

NONE so far, I heard NOT to use it on 64 bit if you still want to keep your Yahoo Mail....guess they'll have to work THOSE bugs out, huh?

Summary

I hope the 18, 746 BLOCKES carry over to a newer upgraded PC whenever I get it, am sure it won't, but we'll see. I really like the idea of NOT being tracked unless I say it's OK to do so.
My business should be kept my business only. LOVE THIS PROGRAM!
