    "Do Not Track Plus for Firefox"

    February 20, 2012  |   By oldtech64

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    Have had it installed for a few days now. Over 19,000 sites blocked to date. It must be working because I have not noticed any of those suggestions to similar items I browsed for.

    Cons

    Unknown so far. Still testing.

    "A Very Good Extension!"

    February 18, 2012  |   By darthvador365

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    It does what it claims to do, and it's very easy. If you have AdBlock Plus, then this is a good addition to it.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, it did have an interference with two websites, in which I had to disable the extension in order to make the websites work completely.

    Summary

    Want to block the trackers? Then download this!

    "It works better than No-Script"

    February 17, 2012  |   By harster

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    Seems to block very well and doesn't interfere with web-site performance like No-Script occasionally does. I'm not sure it does exactly the same thing as No-Script like one reviewer seems to think. If I find it ever does interfere with a website I can turn it off for just that page very easily. I had no problem with my banking web site. I don't think they do any tracking..

    Cons

    Can't think of any.

    Summary

    It's my new favorite add-on.

    "the add-on blocks almost all tracking companies"

    February 16, 2012  |   By LincNeb

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    It's free. It's small. It works--usually. It automatically blocks just about everything that should be.

    Cons

    It doesn't block, Gigya. I have to manually set it every time. It probably should tell you what the different colors for the icon means. You expect to see green all the time. However, when it fails to block a site it is red. Also, it turned yellow when you use Google to search for something. If you click on the icon it tells you that Google is tracking you across the web. :-(

    Summary

    It works, and it is entertaining and it is even informative. I would recommend it.

    "Great product, with precise control"

    February 14, 2012  |   By glennlee

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    Installs in a breeze, and does what it says it will do. Simple pull down interface allows you to select the scripts to block, and allow those which you want (eg scripts that you wish to keep for complicated financial tasks). Does not hog resources. A real winner!

    Cons

    None so far. (I found the extension, No Script to invasive, and prevented a lot of routine browsing.)

    Summary

    Try this add on. You will like it. With more tracking, especially the social networks like Facebook, you will restore some semblence of privacy to your browsing, at little cost in efficient browsing.

    "Works as advertised but does same thing as NoScript"

    February 14, 2012  |   By Alan Mintaka

    Version: DoNotTrackMe for Firefox 1.0

    Pros

    It works the way it's supposed to work.

    Cons

    If you're already running the NoScript FireFox add-on, you don't need Do Not Track Plus. After I installed this add-on, I soon verified that the only thing it was doing was verifying what NoScript had been doing in the first place. Two add-ons that perform the same function aren't needed. NoScript was the first installed and had already shown itself to be very dependable, especially when it came to blocking the Facebook invasion of every website on the internet. For those reasons, I uninstalled Do Not Track Plus. However, if you're not running NoScript, Do Not Track Plus would be a good add-on to have. If you want to block tracking websites, one or the other add-on is indepensible. Your choice. "There's no accounting for taste".
