Default Find which websites are tracking you online - 03-06-2012, 04:19 PM

1. You need to have Firefox browser, if you have it go install this add-on from here http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/collusion/

2. After the add-on has installed look at the bottom right of your window and you'll see a small red dot..that means you have the add-on

3. Leave the dot there and and goto your favorite websites

4. Once you have been at a couple click on the red dot something like this image [posted at the end] will pop up

5. Now you can see that there are circles lots of circles, hover the mouse over them..some of them will be the website you just visited..other circles (mostly empty ones) will be the websites that are spying on you through these websites

what i got after visiting three websites

Cool dude. Thanks for sharing.


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620

So Question to Talal since I see your tech savvy,

when you say they are spying, does that mean they know what Im writing like usernames and passwords or they just know what websites I visit. I noticed that I when visited this shoe website and I see ads for that shoe website everywhere including on pf. So Im assuming they recorded my ip address and are targeting thier ads to me because I showed interests in their shoes.

Twitter has never deleted a single tweet, same with Facebook..all this info is sold to these advertising companies..regarding your question; it depends who is looking into your computer and depending on that it could be anything from what you searched(actually typed) to the page you visited..although i don't think main advertising companies go after people's usernames and password but its the other websites that these websites give info to. Like if all of you tried this add-on you will see that only doubleclick.net was looking at everybody' data..browse a couple more websites and you will see how double-click.net starts giving your data to ten other websites that really do look shady, infact if you go to their addresses there is nothing there

Put cookies in someones computer and you have the perfect key logger, a group of undergrad students last year developed a system to track people's actually location to within a meters difference by tracking them through the wifi they connect to, any wifi there wasn't a single GPS chip on board

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument.
I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness.
