No, no Ghostery, no extensions, no widgets, no nothing, just Opera.
Exactly what he said ▲
No. I'd be honored if anyone cares enough to track me.
On ABP forum they recommended to use antisocial filters and easyprivacy to block web bugs and don't use ghostery.
Is there somme feedbacks here ?
Are you referring to
I'm one of the developers of Ghostery and wanted to chime in on the discussion. Unlike ABP or NoScript, Ghostery is a discovery and learning tool: Ghostery will provide information on what the site is using and gathering on you and gives you options for blocking as needed.
In terms of overlap between lists: Ghostery's list somewhat matches EasyPrivacy, but adds a lot more to it: widgets, plugins, social buttons, and many other services that Ghostery looks for, currently the database is over 700 entries.
Lastly, unlike ABP or NoScript, Ghostery is available for the big 5 browsers: IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera.

I don't want to criticize ghostery, it's really good but i want to know how people who don't use are doing for more privacy.
Installed it on Aurora just to take a look around. Will remove it after I figure out a couple of things.
Yes, in Opera and Firefox.
Also use spywareblaster with custom blocking.txt, many blocked hosts in the hosts, ad/crap sites blocked in peerblock, and of course ad block in both opera and firefox.
IE 9 is using privacy lists.
Well, I took a look at Ghostery. It's nice but for those who already use ABP in Firefox and the right list, it just maybe superfluous.
I have a feeling (without any proof) that makers of lists steal a peek at each other lists and so there'll be a convergence and significant overlap.
Cookie Whitelist, With Buttons is a nice addon. I use it along with Ghostery, NoScript and ABP. If you use Ghostery then you know it is amazing how much some of these websites are tracking you. I have seen a few that had nearly 20 tracking bugs.
Which list(s) do you use ?
I'm sorry I wasn't clear. It was a suggestion for those who do use ABP and Firefox. I don't use ABP with Firefox. I make my own lists for Privoxy which I can apply to any browser I want.
Thanks for the heads up, I'm using Ghostery too (again). I'm noticing a slight performance boost, it blocks many useless web elements.
I've disabled ghostery and i'm trying ABP with easylist, easyprivacy and antisocial and i found it as good as ghostery and a little faster.
No. Because I don't feel the need for it.
Thanx for chiming in. I use ghostery, and one of the things that I love about it is that it actually lists in real time what trackers are data mining you, along with links to info about them.
This. I am amazed at how many trackers will show up for some sites and I like to see the list displayed, which is an option, when I browse around.
Has anyone tried the 64 bit Ghostery on IE 9? If so, what advantages has it over Fanboy's anti-tracking list?
... but with all these lists you're unable to use Facebook or Twitter, that's why Ghostery is the better option IMHO
No, i can use Facebook without any problem.
But facebook links shouldn't work any more ...
Everything seems to work fine. You speak about facebook on others website ?
Yes Are you able to open the links with antisocial filter?
No because buttons disappears. But i don't use it so it's not a problem for me.
If you disable antisocial filter it will works fine, just use easyprivacy or ghostery
