Firefox plugin reveals how your internet browsing is being monitored

Firefox plugin reveals how your internet browsing is being monitored

If someone screams "they're watching you!" into your face, then you're either starring in a horror movie or living in these surveillance-conscious times. Still, if it's the latter, at least now you can put a name to the faceless entities observing your every move. Mozilla has released Lightbeam, a Firefox plugin that visualizes which sites are tracking your browsing history and how those sites are connected. Based on the experimental Collusion add-on, the software will even show you which third-party tools and personalization trackers are watching you from afar. All you need to do to get learning is download the feature from the source -- just remember to pull your best Enemy of the State face when you see the tangled web that just a few minutes of browsing will weave.
