  • Name: Facebook Disconnect
  • Author: Disconnect | Website | Download
  • Description: Stop Facebook from tracking the webpages you go to.

Browser extension developed by Disconnect, Inc. stops Facebook from following you around the Interwebs and tracking your browsing behavior, through their widgets, for their own benefit.

Facebook is the recently most visible offender in that it has been identified that they will track your browsing behavior to websites that have their widgets installed -- even if you are logged out of Facebook.

This extension will block this behavior from Facebook.

Disconnect, Inc. also provides a more comprehensive extension called "Disconnect" that identifies such behavior from many third-party sites, blocks it, and reports it to you in the toolbar button.
