    Do Not Track subscriptions for AdBlock Plus, as well as Firefox's built in Do Not Track feature is enough. I don't need DNTP...

    So, I voted No

    No, am covered enough by ABP and subscriptions. The Do Not Track of Firefox is a voluntary thing, so I don't think that many websites will volunteer. ;)

    Do Not Track Plus doesn't stop contact with the offending tracking sites. It creates a do-not-track cookie for each of the ones that honor the do-not-track process, and creates bogus cookies for the others. It does create a glut of cookies that makes it a little difficult to monitor your cookies simply.

    That's not to say it doesn't serve its purpose. It just does it in a different way than Ghostery.

    Using AdFender - that works with many browsers. And it's free.

    You're wrong. It does block access to tracking services, besides setting opt-out cookies. You can disable either of the protection.

    It seems to have a better "whitelist" than Ghostery, I tried several websites without any broken links or other problems! :)

    No. I check "Tell websites I do not want to be tracked" in options > Privacy. Use ABP (EasyList & EasyPrivacy). And Ghostery (3pes only). And CS Lite Mod with cookies denied globally.

    I don't feel that DNT+ would be necessary for me.

    I was about to make the same question but in reference to DNT+ and Ghostery.
    They pretty much seem to do the same but according to DNT+ it actually allows interaction with social buttons:

    From my experience Ghostery completely blocks this social buttons, which in some cases cripple the site.
