Sadly such software is becoming increasingly important in the modern world. My vote goes to the Tor browser bundle.

That doesn't matter as long as you have a script blocker first and foremost.

I'd vote for Gryptonite if it was available.
IMHO it's user interface is much cleaner and overall better designed than KeePassX and other password managers I've seen.

I also use uBlock Origin though, so it gets my vote instead.

If uBlock Origin is in there, then uMatrix must crack a mention

I was between keepassX and uBlock Origin. KeepassX is the first program to install in a new system as it is one of the best programs for securing personal information locally. And the other, uBlock Origin is the first addon to install with every new Firefox profile.

At the end, I voted for uBlock Origin, as I spend a lot of time in the web and this is a must tool.
