In case you might care to try these, here is a list of the plug-ins I use on firefox:
Adblock Plus (version 2.0.3) Does a great job
DoNotTrackPlus Super great,highly recommended. turns off tracking sites.
FlashBlock 188.8.131.52 lots of ads use flash, so it helps.
HTTPS-everywhere by EFF.org if you go to http://nytimes.com it redirects you to https://nytimes.com. works for a large number of sites.
Alexa Sparky 1.6 this actually tracks web use, but gives info about the site you are on, which I find handy, and I like alexa.
ADblock plus is really an useful tool. I have installed it in all of my browsers: chrome, firefox,IE and Avant browser.
I also installed Dn Not Track plus in these browsers.
Thanks for sharing.
I love this– I learn all sorts of new things. I had never heard of the “Avant browser” Thank you.
I recommend ghostery
Thank you for writing. That seems to be like Do Not Track plus. Is it worth loading as well?
I like ghostery as well but maybe it duplicates donottrack
When you are making websites for a living you will definitely have to get familiar with search engine optimization plug-ins. It is almost impossible to do the same amount of work that these wonderful plug-ins can do for you. I have to say that I cannot live without my plug-ins.
