Thanks to recs from our smart crayfishing regulars, I’ve started using ixquick for searching and installed Do Not Track Plus (there is an autoplay vidoe at this link, mute your speaker before clicking) to block site trackers. I know Ghostery is also recommended (and some say it is better).
On this blog DNT+ says there are any from 2 to 4 sites tracking me when I read it (who knew?).
Talk about our Brave New World here and the stuff we do to protect our privacy. And don’t forget to wave to Big Sis Janet. She’s watching, always watching.
