PrivDog vs. Privacy Badger
« on: November 26, 2014, 01:22:12 AM »
has anyone heard of the  e.f.f.? they put out a blocker called privacy badger. i was wondering, is pri dog better than privacy badger? are there any test results for these 2 , side by side? whatever one is superior needs to be in comodo. i run them both, side by side,,privacy badger seems to block more

Privacy Badger is all about blocking trackers. It only blocks ads if they are found to be tracking the user, and will never block a resource if Do Not Track is respected. It does not have a black-list.
PrivDog can block or redirect ads, something Privacy Badger is not designed to do.

I haven’t seen any test of PrivDog. An early version of Privacy Badger was compared to Ghostery and Disconnect: http://www.propublica.org/article/privacy-tools-how-to-block-online-tracking

If it's of interest I run privacy badger along with bluhell firewall on cyberfox to good effect.
