Ghostery is an extension for the most popular web browsers (Chrome, Opera, Firefox) that checks web pages you visit for the presence of third-party elements (“bugs”). These can include social networking widgets, ads, invisible pixels, used to track user activity and collect analytical data, etc.
It has a huge database of spyware items (over 1,900 bugs and over 2,200 tracking mechanisms).
Features of the plugin:
Flexible lock setting. Allows you to block bugs both individually and from site to site, or to combine both of these blocking methods. If you need to temporarily suspend the blocking of bugs, you can always pause it.
Allows you to block scripts, images, objects and embedded documents posted by companies to which you do not have confidence.
Simple and convenient interface
Detailed descriptions of bugs that will help you find out exactly what you are blocking, and get to know more about companies that follow you on the Internet.
Click-to-play feature to activate frequently blocked useful bugs with a single click. Allows you to instantly unblock such bugs as Google, Facebook or Twitter buttons, commenting systems, video players and sound widgets, thereby restoring the usual appearance of the visited page.
