    Not sure where to put this interesting little add-on,news-7752.html

    There are so many articles re Google's increasingly gobsmackingly amazingly direct intrusion into "private" information: what ever relationship you have with Google: there is no doubt they are really taking you to the cleaners.
    As per the direct comments from the Googleplex: they don't regard privacy as an "issue"

    Try the add-on you may be very surprised.

    Heh heh: may not work with NoScript.

    I am not all that impressed. First I have to install it from the developers web site. From the Firefox Add-ons page "This add-on is hosted on the developer's own website and has not been reviewed by Mozilla."

    I am getting better at picking up what it's alarming in on, Google Analytics and Adsense, oh and Goggle Web sites when visit them. That appears to be it.

    Exactly what personal information is being sent, that would be nice. In my opinion it just alarms on Google Analytics, Adsense and Google web sites. I have other extensions that alert me to that and then some. That and I think I already know when I am visiting a Google web site.

    Well at least I tried it and now it's been summarily removed.

    To each their own. This one is not for me. I guess if I hated Google this would be a good extension to have.
