Ghostery (Tracking blocker) Released

Newspaper icon

Another interesting extension released for Microsoft Edge this week is Ghostery. Ghostery is already a popular browser extension (for other browsers), which can list for you and block tracking technologies used on different websites.

Ghostery works much like any ad blocker, but it also allows you to see a list of the different trackers keeping an eye on your browsing. Now you can keep an eye on the trackers who are keeping an eye on you! You can block them too, of course.

Blocking these trackers should help to increase your privacy, and speed up your browsing and page-loading times. As you can see from the screenshot, you can show and control which trackers you'd like to block.

Increase your browsing speed, privacy, and protection. Ghostery detects and blocks tracking technologies on the websites you visit to speed up your page loads, eliminate clutter, and protect your data and privacy for a cleaner, faster, and safer browsing experience. Ghostery (Store)
