PrivDog AND Ghostery?
« on: June 22, 2013, 03:40:35 AM »
So, CD 27.2 contains PrivDog (excellent BTW). But I'm already running Ghostery. So...

Do I need Ghostery if I now have PrivDog? I assume (since it's a Comodo product) that PrivDog is better than Ghostery?

Thanks!

ubuysa thank you for the topic.

I do not know. I have them both stand.
In Ghostery I can see what is blocked.
With PrivDog I do not understand what is blocked?

Why trust PrivDog if you do not see what is blocked.?
Only because it was included in Comodo Dragon?

Also wanted to hear the views.

Addition: I believe that the information and settings in Ghostery much better.

You only need PrivDog.

PrivDog protects you from more threats.

Ghostery is owned by a company called Evidon (evidon.com).

PrivDog is owned by me :) Our DNA is about protecting our users. We are trying to protect our users from any and every privacy issue and Advertising is a threat vector that must be managed. Of course we have to do this without hurting the environment.

For any site that is trying to track you and mess around with your privacy your own Privacy Dog (PrivDog) will first Bark, then Bite...and to finish it off...Pee on the site!!!! :)

I completely agree with you; the Ghostery's "More Info", "Options"/"Edit Block Options", "Pause Blocking", etc. are a must-have for every user or power user (and Ghostery is a much lighter extension than privdog also). I don't agree at all with "security by obscurity" and "don't worry I'll make it all up for you".
Imho Ghostery+Adblockplus are the best combination.

Hi siegfried,
In what way is Ghostery much lighter than PrivDog, are we talking CPU or memory?

The reason I ask is PrivDog is using no noticable CPU and a very small amount of memory on my systems, in fact about the quarter of memory of that used for ABP alone.

Thank you.

Melih

I have another question.

How do you think PrivDog for portable versions of browsers?
Will it be as an extension or directly embedded in the latest version browsers?
Thanks.

Sneaky tracker hiding deep,
Within the pages that I seek.
I'm browsing quietly unaware,
That the tracker is even there.

Where I go is what it tracks,
To bombard me with Ad attacks.
It's steals my data, personal stuff,
And I have simply had enough!

But with PrivDog and my trusty Dragon,
The tracker's dead and ads are long gone.
PrivDog's bark and Dragon's bite,
Keep me safe and sees me right.

So trackers, ads and cookies too.
There's no more damage you can do.
For if you try to infect me,
PrivDog will upon you pee!
