Ghosty wins, of course. In the latest release of Ghostery for Firefox we fixed a bug that created “zombie compartments” for the last site Ghostery scanned for trackers. We also updated Ghostery’s options and options walkthrough pages to be a little bit easier to understand. If you used the cookie blocker alongside
certain other add-ons, there was an infrequent bug in which the two could sometimes collide, so we added a notice for this and functionality that automatically turns the blocker off. Also, a bunch of our users mentioned our hanging library update bubble as being kind of annoying, so we put a toggle for it in Ghostery’s options. Finally, in addition to other small bug fixes, we made our library update pages secure.
Another thing: we’re nearing our “1,000th tracker in the library” milestone and we’d like to tack on a quick thanks to everyone in the Ghostery community that’s submitted page elements for us to add to it.
We definitely couldn’t have found them without you!
