Ghostery – Browser Tool for Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer

Ghostery is a browser tool available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. It scans the page for scripts, pixels, and other elements and notifies the user of the companies whose code is present on the page. These page elements aren’t otherwise visible to the user, and often not detailed in the page source code. It allows users to learn more about these companies and their practices, and block the page elements from loading if the user chooses.
