TrackerBlock For Firefox Blocks All Types of Tracking Cookies

While surfing the internet, Web sites can track your browsing behavior for commercial or fraudulent purposes (serving ads, sending spam mails, etc) by sending cookies, using flash and now with HTML5. Modern web browsers have an option to tell all the websites that you do not want to be tracked.

For example, in Firefox 5 you can enable this option by going to Option – Privacy tab and check the box against ‘Tell the website I do not want to be tracked’.( Unfortunately, I couldn’t find an option to add individual tracking protection list (TPL) in Firefox 5 as in IE9)

However, if you’re concerned more about your privacy, there is an add-on for Firefox called TrackerBlock that offers complete control over online tracking using multiple methods, including cookie blocking, persistent opt-out cookies, Flash and HTML5 control, and Do Not Track signals.

TrackerBlock stops tracking by blocking third party websites from reading or writing cookies through Firefox. It also deletes other files, like Flash cookies and HTML 5 storage data, that tracking companies may leave on your computer.

Interested Firefox users can install the latest version from Mozilla add-on site here.

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country.

Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required.

Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
