The free Chrome extension RubberGlove blocks plugin and mime-type enumeration by cloaking the array entries in roughly the same way Firefox and Internet Explorer can/do natively. You still need to set chrome to "Click to play" plugins and disable 3rd-party cookies in Chrome's privacy settings yourself. Also, as was mentioned in the study, you'll still ...

As far as I know, nothing has changed much in the latest versions of Firefox except the user interface : One sets up the sync in menu "Tools → Options → Sync", then uses "Tools → Sync Now". If you do not see the menu, right-click an empty space in the above panels and click on "Menu Bar". @Peltier: If the problem is with the new panel that is opened by ...

If you want the Internet to become a stupid one way media as television is, continue with this old fashioned and totally pointless IPv4 and you may succeed. DNS resolution in Firefox is an option and ...

The "bug" has already been sent to mozilla: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/954076 but there seem to be no answer... I think their code just checks if the typed string contains a dot or not to add "www." and ".com". You can just disable this option in http://about:config or change the prefix/suffix with the browser.fixup... parameters

Whenever you load a page with a Facebook like button, Facebook knows you are there, even without setting a cookie. Ghostery stops those buttons being loaded, thereby preventing Google, Facebook, Doubleclick from tracking you.

Many advertizers now user browser fingerprinting to identify you, in addition to cookies. They may also use other tracking techniques like flash cookies. Ghostery, Adblock (with the anti-social list), and also NoScript will prevent you from loading files from these advertizers/trackers, which makes it very hard for them to track you using other means.

You can install a Search Plug-in. Go to > http://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=bing+ssl And click on any of the two Bing SSL engines (I made the second one just now). Click it and check "Make this current Search Engine". Or you can make your own search plugins for maximum customisation. http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html

When using Linux (ahhhh! ;) you could swap a harddisk like that, if the processor type is compatible. With Windows you could try, but I think it won't work unless the laptop is of the same type.

Very simple, either go to your firefox profile folder and create a file called user.js and place the following code in your user.js file. user_pref("general.appversion.override", "5.0 (X11)"); user_pref("general.buildID.override", "20140421162246"); user_pref("general.oscpu.override", "Linux i686"); user_pref("general.platform.override", "Linux i686"); ...
