The web can be a much faster place with no tracking if you get the right
stuff setup. These are all for
Firefox, some are
available on Chrome and
Safari as well (IE is not
safe for computers on a network so we'll ignore it).
This is an ad blocker, it works on all browsers
This is a tracker blocker - you need to tweak the settings at first:
add all blocks, block first party trackers and add deleting flash and
silverlight cookies on exit. Note this will break "Remember Me" on
This is a tool that makes you have to manually enable scripts on
sites. Many sites will be broken initially with this one, it requires
active input at least on the first visit.
One I don't use much anymore but can be very useful is Stylish it lets
you modify how pages appear and can be handy for fixing weird holes
created by adblockers. Don't like a sidebar on a site? get rid of it
