    Why not just stick to using Tor Browser Bundle if you want a bit of anonymity in your web browsing?

    Because TOR is usually slow, its default settings and the safest setting of the included NoScript when under TOR, "Deny all scripts", will break the hell out of the "normal web"? All the things that make TOR somwhat safe to use for anonymous purposes are completely useless once you add in all the things that make the normal web work like scripts, Flash, cookies and so on. TOR was not designed for general surfing, especially on today's Internet.

    The GUI may look nicer, but any user wishing to see the statistics of what has been blocked, now needs to enable Flash Player/have it installed.

    Is it possible to turn off the medals? I think they are childish and unnecessary. :doubt:

    Not through any options. Maybe someone with Javascript knowledge can look through the extension code, and see if it's possible to stop it without affecting its functionality. Or, just ask Abine to remove it once and for all.

    I tried to get in touch with Abine in the past (not related to this), but never got any answer, so won't waste any more time trying to get in touch with them. o_O

    Could something be blocking it? Maybe some security application you may be using?

    Open IE10 addons manager and see whether or not it's enabled.

    I reported my suggestion a few weeks ago but never got an answer as well. :doubt: Maybe it's better to install Disconnect instead. :)
