There's a roughly similar browser extension called "Track Me Not". I have no idea if it's any use. I've been told that it's trivially easy to filter this kind of noise.

If one would consider all the traffic noise, then I can see it being trivially easy (since the traffic would look so much different from everything else), but what if it contained some that weren't really noise? Like if someone piped the output to a database anyone could access?

What about for the emails?
