So how is Ghostery compared to DoNotTrackMe?I've been using DNTM and so far I think it's okay warning me about trackings on websites.Pretty sure all those tracking companies hate these kinds of software and plugins like Ghostery, DNTM, and Adblock Plus....

Certainly be interesting to read a thorough comparative article that summarizes the other 5-10 leading plugins in the field, including conflicts between multiple plugs, achievements (cons/pros) and choosing the number one recommendation (In a similar vein to other articles on the site).* Is there any conflicts during additional plugins running in parallel (eg. AdBlock-Mask Me)?

I didn't know of this plug-in. I'm trying it now and I must say, that my load times have definitely improved. And scrolling with the mouse wheel is much smoother. Weird.Do these tracking thingies really affect browser performance?

Ghostery has been around for a long time and although some may find this article interesting, it is just lazy article. Would have been of more benefit to actually have done a comparison of privacy plugins across the main browsers !
