about Ghostery Jun 2011

I'm thoroughly impressed by the elegant and effective design of this plugin (have only used in Chrome so far). Its notifications are unobtrusive yet obvious, attractively formatted, and has a perfect escalation of information curve (popup names -> right click UI -> complete entity profile page).
