You can choose what ad sites' and other parasites' code to block; the purple box listing blocked and unblocked plugins is optional. Am going to keep mine on for a week or two as I surf around. It's interesting to see which sites are promiscuous trackers. Salon has 23 plugins; Eschaton has 32; Bloglines has 2. My site has Google Analytics. Have never been that concerned or paranoid about being tracked around the web as a potential customer but lately it's getting annoying to view a consumer product on, say, Amazon, and then start seeing ads for the same product showing up on sidebars of other websites. How stupid do these people thing we are? Don't answer that question.
