Firefox Users, Have You Been Using Lightbeam?

Mozilla Lightbeam Guardian

Mozilla sheds a light(beam) on Web privacy | Internet privacy - InfoWorld

AO links to 9 third party sites, I'm sure it's not the worst site in that regard,

the Grauniad link above connects to 33 for instance.

(YMMV depending on your privacy settings)

I've been using Ghostery at home and have it block all tracking cookies, then just use IE for shopping cashback. Looks interesting so I'll have a look at Lightbeam when I get home.

My 'DoNotTrackMe' add on says there are 5 companies trying, unsuccesfully, to track me while on here.

It may change each time you load a page depending on the adverts etc so if you block adverts/flash you may get different results I suspect.

I don't get pop ups or adverts, very effective ad blocker at work

It's showing 37 for me! That's over four days, using Adblock Plus & DoNotTrackMe.
