It's a toss-up between Ghostery and Ad-Block +. Both are winners. Ric

Hi.

Normally Adblock Plus and\or NoScript but you can use them in Tor Browser Bundle!

I voted for Adblock Plus but I'd have selected Adblock Edge if it had been on the list.

Noscript (my vote) and Adblock Plus (or Edge) are my must haves.

What about SpiderOak? Recently it has received a lot of attention as a privacy-aware alternative to Dropbox...

Cleaved!

All the LQ-MCAs would be as useful (if not more to Linux\GNU\*) plus more fulfilling to the users? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nd-feedback-7/

We usually use AdBlock (or AB Edge) & FlashBlock, and have for some time. Works for us...
Recently, Privacy Badger for FireFox was suggested, and it too seemingly works well.
Any comments, folks?

Hey Jeremy:

Adblock Plus has sold out & should be removed from consideration: companies, i.e. Google, can buy their way onto their whitelist, wh/is enabled by default.

Forked version that still does what we really want it to do is Adblock Edge https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-edge/

Also, Privacy Badger should make this list. Electronic Frontier Foundation has really made some nice headway with this project https://www.eff.org/privacybadger

Adblock+ sold out. Maybe you really want to switch to Adblock Edge, forked version of +, sans the whitelist revenue stream.

Yeah, sort of... Uhh... Javascript accomplishes some good things. Trouble is that the state of affairs on most modern sites is that it is misused and abused ad infinitum. I forget the site, but noscri't was blocking something like 60 scripts!

So yeah, even though I really like Adblock Edge and Privacy Badger, I think NoScript has to get the nod on this one. Hmm.....
