    After entering Personal info into various boxes, it eventually leads to wanting to install toutapp

    -https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/toutapp

    For some reason i couldn't install it due to

    I didn't use a real name, but i did supply a real email. Not an important one though :D So as of yet i'm unable to test it. But from what i could assertain from other www's that mentioned it, it "seems" like it might be using WebBugs, and/or an image referrer for tracking etc. Not a new idea :p

    I hope to be able to test it out later. In the meantime if anyone else can do so & verify how it tracks = :thumb:

    Surely most good mail clients don't display images by default, hence it isn't all that useful unless you explicitly ask to view images in a message? o_O
