Ghostery is a browser extension that provides users of the interwebs with enhanced privacy as it blocks creepy crawlies hiding in webpages, tracking you, following everything you click or visit. Ghostery has been a widely used tool by users who care about privacy and then Cliqz bough them some time ago. And people had some concerns over what they do with all the info on trackers and how they actually make the money to pay their programmers. Well, worry no more, Ghostery has gone open source!
Anyone can check its source code now and inspect how it works and what and how it transmits the data to Cliqz, ensuring transparency and potential forks as well as accelerated development with larger base of contributors. It’s great news for everyone who value their privacy. If you don’t use it yet, check it out. It supports all major browsers and it can be found on extensions/add-ons webpages of all these browsers.
