Ghostery for Safari
Protect your privacy online with Ghostery for Firefox

Everyone is concern about privacy and security online, and online tracking is a problem that has worried internet net users for many years. Cookies are used by web sites and advertisers to build up a profile of your online activity, and there is often no way of knowing just how this information will be used. Ghostery is a browser extension that is available for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari that can be used to discover exactly what information particular web sites are tracking about you and back control.

The add-on reveals all of the tracking features that can be hidden in the pages you visit and identifies the companies responsible for them. You are then equipped with the information you need to conduct online research about the companies in question and discover more about their privacy policies and how they use the information they track.

While this is useful information, the key feature of Ghostery is the fact that it enables you to block these tracking features. The simple popup interface makes it easy to block cookies and other tracking files, as well as scripts and any files that have been added locally. Ghostery can block tracking components from a growing list of companies to ensure protection against all of the latest tracking methods.

The Firefox, Chrome and Safari versions of the tool will detect tracker scripts, img tags, and iframes from over 500 data collection services, but Internet Explorer users will find that the add-on is less useful simply because of the way the browser works.

Verdict:

Anyone who uses the internet is right to be concerned about privacy, and Ghostery provides an easy way to remain in control.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
