Do Not Track Plus: Increase Privacy, Speeds Up the Web

From Abine via PC Word & The Loop:

Katherine Noyes from PC World:

“Users can decide at the individual website level whether they want to block or allow tracking. When they do want their activities to remain private, DNT+ blocks a growing list of 580 different tracking technologies and more than 200 tracking companies.

With an easy-to-use interface, the tool aims to prevent advertisers from watching users’ site visits, shopping interests, hobbies, clicks, and geographic location. It also keeps a running “block counter” in the corner of the browser window so users can easily see how many tracking attempts have been blocked, and from what companies.”

I have AdBlock installed for my browser but I’ll be adding this, too. I’m curious to see if I notice a speed difference in the websites I visit. There’s a video at the download site.
