Today's Topic:
Ghosterly shows you all the tracking scripts that websites you visit target against you. You are able to individually block scripts and see which ones are running in real time.

Ghosterly requires more manual interaction that other options, but as a geek it is nice because it shows you what is happening. You can play with websites by blocking specific tracking mechanisms and see what happens.

Ghosterly is free and can be found here: http://www.Ghostery.com
