Track the trackers - a new Add-On for Firefox users..


Recommended Posts



About this Add-on

Collusion is an experimental add-on for Firefox that allows you to see which sites are using third-party cookies to track your movements across the Web. It shows, in real time, how that data creates a spider-web of interaction between companies and other trackers.

If you don't see the Collusion icon in the bottom right corner of your browser, make sure the add-on bar is shown. On Windows, click the Firefox menu button, then click Options, then check "Add-on Bar". On Mac, go to the View menu, then the Toolbars menu, then check "Add-on Bar".

We're working on adding more features, such as the ability to click on any node in the graph and tell Firefox to block third-party cookies to that site. We're also working on visualizing other methods of tracking besides third-party cookies. If you would like to keep an eye on our progress, file a bug, request a feature, or get a copy of the source code, please go to https://github.com/toolness/collusion

NOTE from Shy: It works great on Firefox stable release 12.0 but some people with older versions of Firefox (not all) have had a few hiccups with it. Also, the Collusion Icon may appear at other places (than far right) on your Add-on bar.. Depends on the extensions you already have..
