A new browser extension has been released by former Google developer Brian Kennish called Disconnect. Its designed to help you take control of the tracking cookies used by Digg, Facebook, Google, Twitter and Yahoo, to keep tabs on the websites you visit and searches you carry out.
If you use either the Rockmelt or Chrome browser, after a simple install process, you then have access to a menu bar ‘d’ icon that allows you to view just how many tracking requests you have blocked from these major websites.
The Disconnect browser plugin also allows you to turn tracking blocking on and off when ever you need and even allows you to anonymously carry out searches on Google when you are logged into iGoogle.
Disconnect is an open-source software and is available to download here.
