Do you feel paranoid when you surf the Internet, fearing that your privacy is being violated by other people? I came across a great piece of software called Ghostery, which you can read more about in a nicely written review: http://download.cnet.com...

The original website is http://www.ghostery.com.... I won't hesitate to recommend this to whoever wants to protect his privacy on the Internet while he surfs. There aren't significant negatives of this software at all.

Ghostery is a bunch of bull, i used it for a while and it significantly slows down your browsing depending on what options you have turned on. It provides no privacy benefit.

If you want privacy the just don't save (options in firefox) all your browsing info and use noscript to block third party scripts that track your presence or advertise.

Yes, but I know my privacy is being violated. I doubt its illegal since I'm a minor tho.
Doesn't make it less wrong, and increases m paranoia. Is there a solution?

I shall see how it works for me and give my own review.

Have you used it? If so for how long?

Well, I never save things on my Internet browser. However, it does increase the privacy security. I don't see anything being slower. In fact, it's faster since is actually blocks things; it doesn't add more.
