"Surprising, to me anyway..."
If it's really doing what it claims to be doing, then it's great. It is also surprising to me, when I open it up on a particular website, just to see how many different companies are following me around on the web. As far as I'm concerned that kind of tracking is an invasion of privacy, and should be illegal anyway. One thing I have noticed, is that every time I have opened it up on Wikipedia, it shows that nobody is tracking me. I assume this is because Wikipedia is already blocking them, so if that is the case, props for Wikipedia...
It does seem to slightly slow down the initial opening of some web-sites, Facebook being one in particular that I've noticed, as well as BBC News, which I use as my home-page.
As I said above, if it really is doing what it claims to do, I think everybody should be running this. If I want to buy something on the web, there are plenty of places to do so, and search-engines in case I can't find what I'm looking for. I don't need pop-ups, and tailored advertising to tell me where to go. For that matter, I wouldn't click on a pop-up, or peripheral advertisement anyway, for fear of it being a trick of some sort. So if that is what they are using this tracking info for, they're wasting their time tracking me anyway.
