Tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons are just a few methods used by online companies to get additional info from each new visitor. But Evidon, a team o developers, released an add-on browser that can give you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.

In this way you can learn additional info about the companies trading your online behavioral data. The more info you get, the better you can make decisions about how to control your exposure to those companies.
Ghostery allows zero-tolerance blocking of anything ad related, complete (visible) open communication with ad companies, or countless measures in between – determined by you, the informed web user.
