1. Ghostery

Ghostery detects the use of invisible web trackers on services such as Google Analytics and Facebook. When visiting a website it displays an alert that states the name of the web bug and supports many tracking services. Ghostery can block the web services which you don’t trust to prevent tracking.

2. WOT (Web of Trust)

WOT helps you avoid risky and dangerous websites by color coding websites you visit. It has ratings for millions of websites from the community and has four components which are trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy and child safety.

3. CustomizeGoogle

CustomizeGoogle is a must for those who want to protect their privacy on Google. It enables you to enhance Google through many ways. It has two privacy functions, one which provides the anonymity of Google cookies and one that allows you to stop sending cookies to Google Analytics.

4. BetterPrivacy

BetterPrivacy deletes hard to remove flash cookies and describes itself as a ‘super-cookie safe guard’ . It provides multiple removal options such as deletion by timer or deletion on start-up. Another of its privacy features is the disabling of ping tracking which allows a server to track a users actions.
