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.

    "performs as advertized."

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 3.2.1072

    Pros

    Gives a report of how much has been blocked, and you can customize what it allows to track for frequently visited sites.

    Cons

    really haven't found any. - Umm, well it tells me how may trackers have been blocked per session which slows down shutting the browser by about 3 seconds.

    Summary

    get it if you are concerned with privacy.
