Ghostery + AdBlock, no information about me.

Modified host file, no need to install software and it's multi-browser. No information about me.

How do you keep your host definitions current?

tell me more about your hosts file.

Here is the one I use:


I had to rename it to see the site the OP linked, and it had no preference nor any personal info. I'll try it on my work computer on which I don't have neither a hosts file or an adblock when I'll get there.

I personally prefer Ghostery because it tells me exactly what was blocked and when.

thank you!
