What is Disconnect?
"Disconnect" is a prominent Firefox add-on that lets you visualize and block websites that track your search and browsing history. It improves web speed, reduces bandwidth use, and ensures a more private and secure browsing session. Distinguished by several awards for its efficiency, Disconnect is open-source, and works harmoniously with other filtering add-ons to provide an optimized internet experience.
Visualize and block the otherwise invisible websites that track your search and browsing history.
Disconnect was named the best privacy tool by the New York Times (2016), Innovation Award winner for Best Privacy and Security software at South by Southwest (2015), listed as one of the 100 best innovations of the year by Popular Science and one of the 20 best Chrome extensions by Lifehacker.
▪ Load the pages you go to up to 44% faster and save up to 39% bandwidth.
▪ Stop tracking by thousands of third-party sites.
Disconnect is open-source, pay-what-you-want software.

Note about using Disconnect with other filtering add-ons like Adblock Plus: Disconnect is compatible with other filtering add-ons, but if you want Disconnect to show blocking info, uninstall then reinstall any other filtering add-ons you have (i.e., Disconnect must be added first).
P.S. Green (or checked) means blocked!
