Firefox here, trying my best to keep google from getting my information, haha. But if you guys decide to put out a Firefox extension, I would definitely be interested!

blocking all the google trackers? every other site has them.

trying my best

Also, because they are actively attempting to gather a catalogue of information on the American public, they will eventually succeed (unless something changes, such as legislation being passed).

My argument is that we shouldn't make it easy for them, and attempting to restrict our usage of their platforms means the harder they have to work for that particular information, given a small population. Once you have a bunch of people that will willingly advertise for you for free, I feel that power kinda goes out the window too.

Perhaps I am being slightly idealistic, but if I want to see change in the world, surely I should attempt to live that change?

i just wanted to point towards those, so you can install/add a script, which blocks these trackers, to your firefox version ;)

Ah yeah, we've got nothing there so far, sorry. If porting RESAE to firefox is easy, we'll probably do that in the next week or two. If it's not easy, then we may just start building these features directly in to the site, which will probably take months to complete.

Hey, having a greater degree of freedom regarding communication is worth a slight inconvenience given the context. Hopefully more people who come here will feel the same!
