A brand-spanking-new version of Ghostery for IE is ready for your downloading pleasure! Version 2.4.2 includes official support for IE9, better page scanning, and general under-the-hood performance improvements to make Ghostery in IE run faster than ever.
If you have a previous version of Ghostery for IE installed, you need to uninstall before you grab the new version. Ghostery behaves just like any other windows program when you want to uninstall: visit Control Panel > Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs. You’ll see Ghostery IE Plugin in the list. Select it, and click “Uninstall” or “Remove Program”.
Then pop over to the Ghostery download page and click the IE download link. You’ll get some notices to make sure you really want to install Ghostery… just let IE know that we’re cool and everything’s going to be fine. Restart IE when the installation is finished, and you’ll be exploring the Internet with Ghostery!
(Note: Our download page has shown that the current version is 2.4.2 for a little while – that was just a numbering slip-up on our part. 2.4.2 is the new-and-improved version.)
The Ghostery team wants to give a special thanks to all the folks who volunteered to beta test this new version – your feedback was super valuable. We can’t do this stuff without our awesome user community, and we really appreciate hearing from you. If you have any comments or questions about this new version, comment here on the blog or hit us up at info (at) ghostery (dot) com.
Thanks, as always, for using Ghostery!
