Big Brothers are watching you…


You all know that there are many Big Brothers watching every click that we make, hoping to make a profit by trying to sell us something we browsed through or bought, as if we are going to buy more of the same.

Earlier today an experimental add-on for the Firefox browser called Collusion was introduced by Mozilla that shows how companies are tracking us as we surf the Web.

I installed a fresh copy of Firefox 7 today and then I installed this add-on. I was able to see all the uninvited third parties who are tracking my movements across the web.  Collusion show in real time, a spider-web of inter action between companies and other trackers.

I closed the Firefox browser and after some time I opened it. I was shocked to see a hive of trackers tracking my every move. Here is a screen shot of my Firefox screen:

I advise you to install this add-on for your Firefox browser.
