Lightbeam for Mozilla has been released as a web-browser add-on which will allow you to find out who is tracking you, what data they are collecting, how often they are collecting it, and enable you a number of privacy maneuvers regarding these types of third-party cookies and tracking systems. You’ll be able to check out a graph, clock-display, and list versions of this interaction which can be filtered by recent sites, last 10 sites, and more. Find the add-on yourself at the Official Mozilla Lightbeam Website and find out what websites are keeping track of you, or as Mozilla puts it in their statement:
“Lightbeam is a Firefox add-on that uses interactive visualizations to show you the first and third party sites you interact with on the Web.”
Previously we also put out something related to this phenomena of privacy versus advertising which RealGamerNewz Tech Section readers may want to see called “How To Stop the Internet From Spying On You – Opt Out of Online Behavioral Advertising”.
