    Does anyone else slightly chuckle at the thought of Google, who needs Analytics and tracking in general, making an extension that blocks the data?

    I just wish Chrome allowed for extensions to run purely in incognito mode as opposed to both.

    Those utilizing AD Blocking Software can use the following to Block Google-Analytics and other Google Tracking:

    (1 ) *google-analytics.*
    (2) *googleadservices.*
    (3) *googlesyndication.*

    And some Non-Google Blocking:

    (1) *facebook.*
    (2) *feedburner.*
    (3) *rss.*
    (4) *twitter.*
    (5) *webtrends.*
    (6) *youtube.*
    (7) /ads.
    (8 ) d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000 (note: this blocks Flash Active-X)

    That looks a lot like part of my Proxomitron adlist.
    Good thing I swallowed my coffee before I saw that. Even if one was inclined to believe them, it's an idea that doesn't need to start. Just what we need, company specific blocking add-ons. That approach if widely adopted could become a mess in a big hurry.

    Probably because of "The Hamburg Data Protection Authority"? ;)
