    TrackerBlock gives you complete control over online tracking, deploying multiple forms of protection:

    Cookie Blocking and Deletion - TrackerBlock can stop over 550 tracking companies from reading or writing cookies on your computer, and deletes other tracking tags they may leave behind (Flash cookies and HTML5 storage).

    Do Not Track - With each browser request you can send a signal that you do not want to be tracked.

    Opt-out Cookies - Keeps opt-out cookies in place for hundreds of companies, which turns off targeted advertising and, with some companies, data collection.

    HTML5 Control - Shows you which companies are using HTML5 to store data on your computer, and lets you delete any or all of it.

    Independent Add-on - TrackerBlock 2.1 requires no interaction with our servers, providing even greater privacy.

  • Priv3

    Free Mac Windows Linux Windows Mobile iPhone ... iPad Firefox Website

    Social networking sites like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter can track your visits to any web page that uses the familiar "Like", "Follow", or "+1" buttons, even if you do not actually click these buttons. The Priv3 Firefox extension lets you remain logged in to the social networking sites you use and still browse the web, knowing that those third-party sites only learn where you go on the web when you want them to.

    Priv3 does not block third-party interactions completely. Instead, it selectively suppresses the inclusion of third-party web cookies when your browser pulls in content from the social networks, but does provide them if you decide to interact with the social networking features.

  • ShareMeNot

    Free Mac Windows Linux Windows Mobile iPhone ... iPad Firefox Website

    ShareMeNot is designed to prevent third-party buttons (such as the Facebook “Like” button or the Twitter “tweet” button) embedded by sites across the Internet from tracking you until you actually interact with them.

    Social media buttons allow Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and others to track your online browsing activities on every site that includes one of these buttons, even if you never click the buttons and (in some browsers) even if you have third-party cookies disabled?

    ShareMeNot is a Firefox add-on designed to prevent third-party buttons (such as the Facebook “Like” button or the Twitter “tweet” button) embedded by sites across the Internet from tracking you until you actually click on them. Unlike traditional solutions, ShareMeNot does this without completely removing the buttons from the web experience.
