DoNotTrackMe for Chrome (formerly Do Not Track Plus for Chrome) 3.2.1117

A simple but effective extension designed to stop the secret tracking of your web browsing activity by blocking cookies and other ads with tracking capability
Each time you visit a website, it is most likely that your activity will be tracked and monitored by ads or other components that aim to record browsing habits. DoNotTrackMe for Chrome is a simple yet efficient extension that can protect your privacy by automatically blocking trackers on the websites you access.

Once installed, the addon places a new button in the browser toolbar, which highlights when a new tracker is blocked. Clicking on it reveals a window where you can view details about the tracking companies, along with a graphical representation of the blocked tracking attempts.

When visiting a new webpage that carries embedded tracking elements, DoNotTrackMe automatically acts to forbid data collection and displays a small popup window notifying you about the number of blocked trackers.

DoNotTrackMe for Chrome can provide tracker suggestions and displays detailed information about each tracking company. If you decide to unblock an element, you can do so with just a click, but a webpage refresh is required for the changes to take effect.

Unfortunately, the extension does not allow you to create an exclusion list to include the websites you completely trust, but it does remember trackers you previously unblocked.

Aside from stopping attempts to collect data about your activity, DoNotTrackMe for Chrome has another practical function. It can be used for hiding real e-mail addresses and generating false ones to be filled in forms that require such data. This is a preventive measure to avoid spam and avert your real e-mail address from being shared with others.

DoNotTrackMe is a very useful addon that Chrome users should have installed on their computer, providing a convenient method to prevent ads and similar elements from tracking you. And if you are not currently using Chrome, note that there is also a version for Firefox.
