EFF is launching a new extension for Firefox and Chrome called Privacy Badger. Privacy Badger automatically detects and blocks spying ads around the Web, and the invisible trackers that feed information to them. You can try it out today: https://www.eff.org/privacybadger
Privacy Badger is EFF's answer to intrusive and objectionable practices in the online advertising industry, and many advertisers' outright refusal to meaningfully honor Do Not Track requests. This week, Mozilla published research showing that privacy is the single most important thing that users want from their web browsers. Privacy Badger is part of EFF’s growing campaign to deliver that privacy by giving you the technical means to disallow trackers within the pages you read on the Web.

This is an alpha release; we've been using it internally and don't think it's too buggy. But we're looking for intrepid users to try it out and let us know before we encourage millions of people to install it. If you find bugs, you can file them on github against either the Firefox or Chrome repos as appropriate.

I'm thinking of giving it a shot just to see how it behaves, what it does and how it interferes, or does not interfere with browsing.Passing this on for anyone else that may find this useful or interesting.
I'll update this as soon as I can give it a through review...more to come.

dunno.gif I'm familiar with how noscript dinks javascript - the answer is, I don't know yet, that's why I thought I would check it out and share the results good or bad.
