    Badger works more like Safari automated algorithm, Possum doesn't really block trackers but aims more to block etags tracking, headers infos and sometimes against fingerprinting.

    It does the same thing, albeit more aggressively. If anyone can add to this, do so.

    One of the best privacy oriented extensions around. Probably the best and feature rich suite.

    The only thing I'd say is lacking is the UI design, and changing settings and stuff can be a bit clunky.

    Extensive support to fuzz up tracking methods and has good explanation of what each setting does, and can configure most of those settings. Extra features and more premium tracking lists will require a one-time purchase.
