"The Markup recently launched Blacklight, a free, instant
privacy-inspection tool. Enter any website, and it reveals how you may
be tracked when you visit the site, names the companies receiving your
data, and explains what the trackers are doing—some of them watch your
every mouse move and record your every keystroke. Trust us, it’s more
than you’re expecting, raising the question: What can you do about it?
One option is to ensure your web browser is protecting your privacy. In
this guide, we’ll walk through some of the different techniques used to
track people across the web and detail what each of the major browsers
does, or doesn’t do, to circumvent it."
