They also have a site, fixtracking dot com, that is helpful.

I added the ghostery program from fixtracking, but my computer seems to be running a little slow.  Love the application itself.  It lets you know what ad trackers the current web site in your browser is using, and it blocks various trackers.

Does this service still exist and do people use it? I've never heard of it before but it sounds cool not being tracked online. Those targeted ads annoy the heck out of me.

Yes, it's a great tool.  They also have several add ons to help protect you from being tracked!  Good company!  They do not retain search histories, so the government cannot go to them and ask them to hand over data; they have none.
