Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, and whether we like it or not, we're being tracked all the time.

 

Everything that you do on a computer, is saved, correlated, studied, passed around from company to company without your knowledge or consent; and where the government accesses it at will without a warrant.  I call this the Internet without privacy.


I found a tool called Collusion (Firefox addon) to track who was tracking me.

 

I'm not saying the sky is falling but found the results quite interesting.

I use Ad-block Plus and it is a really nice add on.  It comes in Chrome and FF flavors.  Does Colliusion come in a Chrome Flavor?
