As you surf the Web, information is being collected about you. Web tracking is not 100% evil — personal data can make your browsing more efficient; cookies can help your favorite websites stay in business. But, says Gary Kovacs, it’s your right to know what data is being collected about you and how it affects your online life. He unveils a Firefox add-on to do just that.
Gary Kovacs is the CEO of the Mozilla Corporation, where he directs the development of Firefox. If you have Mozilla Firefox you can install the plugin Collusion to see what websites are tracking you. Collusion is an experimental add-on for Firefox and allows you to see all the third parties that are tracking your movements across the Web. It will show, in real time, how that data creates a spider-web of interaction between companies and other trackers. Download Mozilla Firefox and then Click on Collusion to add it to your firefox browser.
