I use it! No more annoying ads following me around the net. No more ads on this page, either, that aren't related to rallys.

It shows even just browsing the forums that both Google and FaceBook are tracking you.

It doesn't stop those sites from writing to your cache.

It helps, but don't assume you're tracking free.

It shows there were 12 trackers on me when I went to the portal page after installation. Thanks FC for putting this out there.

AVG has a free version I use and they just added a no tracking feaature (looks alot like your picture) But on Mozilla firefox they have a plug in called 'ad blocker plus' where you hoover over the pop up and a little block button appears on the top right,- you click it and the ad disappears.
It's about the same as swatting flies.

I know they track you for the purpose of target advertising (and only God knows what else) But I just zonk em out. Now - but one day if I am sitting here and a face like the wizard of OZ shows up and says my name instead of Dorothys then that will be the day. Hey you guys and Gals be sure to catch the Solar eclipse this sunday.

Mine is set up like this (if you are asking me) But I use Firefox 4.0.1 and NEVER UPDATE as I use fast dial as a bookmarking app. If I update I will loose Fast dial. I also used to have Clipmarks, but this 4.0.1 does not support it.

This is good reading.
WSJ article

I know nothing is free, but at the same time, most of this is not published, buried in 10,000 word user agreements, and to me dishonest.

I have mostly used IE as that is what came with my PC and that is what I have at work. Now I am experimenting with using Chrome or Firefox.

It goes far beyond just placing cookies. Sites also send back mouse tracking, text content of the pages you visit, time spent, and much more.

DuckDuckGo

Here's a new search engine that doesn't track you:
DuckDuckGo

Click on the links on the bottom -- they are eye openers.
