Previously Posted – Part 1 Article – Browser Protection More FIREFOX ADD-ONs – additional Firefox extensions that are worth considering:
- Disconnect Similar to Ghostery, Disconnect is an add-on that blocks web trackers from gathering your personal information.
- uMatrix A point-and-click matrix-based firewall, with many privacy-enhancing tools – for “advanced users”
- Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe) One of the best add-ons for protecting your data. Not only does it block companies from collecting information about you, it also manages and protects your sensitive details like password credentials and payment information.
- Better Privacy Combats the long-term “super-cookies” (“Flash cookies”) that companies use for perpetual tracking of your web activity. It lets you view and destroy these super-cookies.
- Clean Links When it detects an obfuscated or nested link (such as you might find with shady redirection or affiliate products), it replaces it with the clean, straight version. You’ll be able to see “dodgy links” before you actually click on them.
