I use this everyday. It's great to have trackers blocked and when a website locks their content behind their paywall, it's pretty simple to open Ghostery and figure out which tracker to temporarily unblock (usually Google Tag Manager or Doubleclick). So much easier to use than other ad blockers and I like the ability to control what third parties can load on my browser.

Pros:

Gets rid of so much clutter

Cons:

Getting a little bulky with new features. Keep it simple guys.

I added Ghostery from the Firefox app list. Seems good but when I log on the computer it appears as my home page. I just want it running in the background. Do you know if I can change it to just clicking on the page when I want to? Thanks.

When it crashes on Chrome, I have to go to my extensions and disable/enable Ghostery to make it work again. Otherwise I can not imaging web surfing without it.

Pros:

It just works

Cons:

Sometimes crashes on chrome, otherwise it's life saver
