Anonymizer Nevercookie tool is now available

I am very excited that we have finally released our new free “Anonymizer Nevercookie” product. You can download it here from our facebook account. It enhances the private browsing mode in Firefox to protect against a whole range of new kinds of tracking cookies that currently are nearly impossible to delete.

    I have installed the Nevercookie add-on in Firefox and find that the “options” button is grayed out (ie non-functional).

    Is this a bug?

    I’m not familiar with an “options” button. There isn’t anything like that included in the extension. Is it possible this is from a different extension? Were you referring to the Advanced Privacy Settings option under Tools?

    This is odd because I downloaded the Nevercookie from the link in this blog on to two machines and in both cases the “options” button appeared in the extensions list.

    More to the point, does the Nevercookie provide better protection than the BetterPrivacy add-on?

    The settings for Nevercookie are under the Tools menu, and these are for advanced users. It’s called ‘Advanced Privacy Settings’. Better privacy protects against flash objects called LSOs, but these are not the only browser-independent objects. In addition to protecting against LSOs, Nevercookie also protects against Microsoft Silverlight data storage objects. So if your definition of ‘better’ is that it protects you against more tracking methods, then the answer is yes.

    Does not work with Firefox 4.0
