A useful extension by Firefox

Firefox users might be interested in an add-on which they have developed to stop Facebook tracking you all over the web.

I got this warning come up...

Facebook also tracks you when you click on a link from a Facebook page. The link has lots of additional numbers and letters which tells Facebook what links you are clicking on and remembers your browsing history.

With the add-on installed, it removes all this tracking information and just takes you to the website as if you typed it in the address bar.

I hope they bring other add-ons out for Google and others that track you everywhere you go so that ads can be targeted at you and your browsing history captured without your permission.

Not that I have anything to hide, but I just don't like sites tracking me and storing my browsing history.
