Back again to square one …


This is a sequel to the article “Big Brothers are watching you…” that I posted yesterday after installing Collusion the new Add-on for the Firefox browser.

Today morning I switched on my laptop, opened my Firebox browser and out of curiosity I checked Collusion and here is the screen image of what I saw:

So, even after I shut down and switched on the computer the following day, I find that the Big Brothers are still there stalking to watch my movements on the web.

Exasperated, I clicked the orange drop down tab “Firefox” at the top left-hand corner, and then clicked “Options”:

Now on the options page I clicked the ‘Privacy’ tab and I checked the box under Tracking – “Tell websites I do not want to be tracked” and then clicked “clear all current history” and cleared ‘Browsing & Download History’, ‘Cookies’,  ‘Cache’, and ‘Active Logins’.

ext I checked Collusion and I was elated.  This is what I saw – a clean slate.

Next I logged into WordPress Dashboard.

Then I entered the web page of “The Telegraph”

And here is the screen shot of Collusion while browsing ‘The Telegraph’.

Next I searched Google. After about googling 6 sites, I checked Collusion and was confounded.So, I was back again to square one.
