PrivAlert is a great addition :)
Protection from  malicious scripts and protecting banking online (like keyscrambler) would be great :)

Thanks for the update!

Is there any way to make plugin placeholders smaller? Or it depend on the size of the element that mask? Before looked better (white area) IMO! Now, pure Chrome! ;D
However, is not a big thing!
My software never has bugs. It just develops random features! :p

What's new:
- Dragon is based on Chromium 23.0.1271.97.
- Dragon now includes PrivAlert extension.

Excellent addition. A replacement for Ghostery, promises to be more effective, and without any need to agree to Better Advertisings terms and conditions :)

That tastes sooo good. I haven't fully trusted Ghostery since Better Advertising bought the guy out, but nothing else did what Ghostery does.


But ??? - Documentation : For instance ..

1. What does it do which Ghostery does not ( most curious about this question, does it also dual purpose as an AdBlock+ replacement, and if so from where are the lists updated from .. MVPS hosts list or an adblock list ?? )

2. If you put a sites url in the whitelist, what does the ( un-checked ) tickbox do

Question 2 is raised because looking at the "Threats list", if you have a white listed site then its threat category becomes un-checked, which logically says to me "You have elements from this list whitelisted so the category is not completely blocking all elements" - Hence it is un-checked.
Yet sites added to the Whitelist tab, by default, are also un-checked, which if you go by the logic of the Threats list says to me "Here are the sites you want whitelisted, but they are in-active" ..

.. so is having whitelisted sites un-checked mean they are in-active, meaning we have to also tick everything we add to the whitelist ( which seems counter to the users wishes if they are adding a site to a whitelist )

Or, if not, what does ticking them do ?

Or, I notice the Remove Selected button at the bottom, so is the tickbox purely for mass removal ? ( aswell as having the remove option at the end of each line )

3. Will you be making PrivAlert more detailled in what can be blocked per site ( I believe at the moment its an all or nothing option for all the different elements any particular site may have )

PrivAlert is based on Ghostery, doesn't it? Any differences?

...if you want to see the perfection of how PrivAlert works, download & run this small tool from Microsoft, that lets you see your connections, both "listening", & "established", & run it with PrivAlert both enabled & disabled. I saw a HUGE decrease with it enabled, & it didn't seem to affect speed or functionality of any website so far...
TCPView is an advanced, more easy to use version of "netstat", in a GUI

...BTW, thanx, from the bottom of my heart...

Congratulations PrivAlert team and Dragon team!

This is just the first release of PrivAlert, so your feedback is very much appreciated. Comparing it with Ghostery would mean to limit it and that's because PrivAlert is set to be much more than just anti-tracking tool. Just wait to see what 2013 will bring for PrivAlert... actually, for you!:D

Next release of IceDragon will also come with PrivAlert.

In couple of days PrivAlert will have it's own website and forum. Hope you like this tool and don't hesitate to comment/criticize it! We'll just keep improving:).
Regards,
Andrei Ciubotaru
