Do Not Track Plus for Firefox

Do Not Track Plus (DNT+) is a browser add-on. The fact is that social networks and ad companies monitor what you are doing on the Internet; where you go, for how long and how often. With DNT+, you are protected and can browse in private. Created by Abine the Online Privacy Company, DNT+ blocks any tracking software or method used without affecting websites or the way you surf. The utility was originally designed for Firefox, but it now supports Google Chrome, IE and Safari. An Opera version is now being developed.

EULAlyzer

EULAlyzer by BrightSoft is a program that analyzes the contents of the EULA (end user license agreement). If you dont know what the EULA is, its that long agreement that a software requires you to accept before proceeding with the installation. Most people just click yes without reading it. That is understandable because those EULAs are full of legal, unintelligible words. But thats a mistake because you have no idea what you agree to. What EULAlyzer does is scan this long document. It will flag phrases, statements and words that are important.
