Hello,

First let me start by saying that it doesn't seem like this part of the forum has a wishlist part yet or anything like that so I will post my wishes in here.

Wish:
I would very much like for PrivDog to show what it is blocking, like Ghostery which says for example "Google Analytics" etc. Pretty simple wish  ;D

Edit: w33d3r came up with a good idea on how to do this!
I think the categories being expandable ( click or user setting ) to show these would be good.

Thank you,
Sanya IV Litvyak.

+1 - But without making the window huge

That's a good idea as long as none of the information is collected and you can disable it.

Just an idea here, some sites share user information with 3rd parties to gain some extra cash, this can be data you provide them with when you sign up etc, so how about a list of sites that are known for sharing this data in this way and then display a warning when you reach their sign-up page etc?
Just an idea.

we will make PrivDog available to all 3 main browsers very shortly, when you install you should install it in all browsers to make sure there is no Leak....otherwise PrivDog will bark :)

can you pls explain what you mean?

Yes good idea..but these sites usually have some sort of a tracker on their site...so when you go to their site they know where else you have been and record that you also went to their site....PrivDog barks, bites and then pees on these kind of sites...so you are safe already :)

I mean for example. I want it to ComodoDragon, but do not want to Ice.
Just when it will be for IE.
 just wanted to choose where to install.

It turns out you need to install on all browsers? :-\
Where is the guarantee that it will not conflict with other add-ons?

If you then disable  in any browser - will it affect?

Sure the trackers are blocked but you've still given them the information when signing up, like e-mail and real-name which they are able to sell to third parties, once signed up there isn't much more you can do about it, but if PrivDog would "bark" and show a notification when you reach their sign-up page, which says that the company is known for selling the information you provide them in the form, it may make users re-think about using their real information.
