Firefox add-on to block web tracking script

Here is a useful add-on to enhance Firefox browser security feature. When you visit a website this add-on will alerts and blocks any web bugs that the site implemented for their use.

You can also block (on /off) any hidden script from the Ghostery option menu (In Firefox, Tools – Ghostery – Manage Ghostery option). So you can surf the site faster.

This add-on supports Firefox 3 – 3.5 and works with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. Install Ghostery from Mozilla add-on site.
