An even better alternative to Privacy Possum is Jake McNeill's Trace!

Install link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/trace/njkmjblmcfiobddjgebnoeldkjcplfjb
or https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/absolutedouble-trace/

The website: https://absolutedouble.co.uk/trace/

I had to search a bit  to find this extension/add-on,
but then again it is certainly worth the trouble.

Stealth browsing is becoming harder and harder all the time recently.
Privacy Possum, meaning Privacy Badger "on steroids", is a lot better than just Privacy Badger,
now also comes with blocking facebook link-tracking.

Martin Brinkman's Trace is even better still, it will protect from
1. Canvas Fingerprinting,
2. Audio Fingerprinten,
3. WEB RTC leaks,
4. User-Agent tracking,
5. Browser-plugin fingerprinting,
6. Beacon aka Webbugs Requests,
7.  Bad Top Level domains,
8. Hyperlink Auditing,
9. HTTP Referer Headers,
10. Chrome Header Trackers,
11.  E-Tag Tracking,
12. Javascript Crypto Mining,
13. Trace Page (injecting code into certain sites to disable certain functions),
14. Tracking Cookies, *
15.  URL parameter tracking ** (* & ** added recently).

RTC peer connection, RTC Data Channel, RTC Rtp Receiver Javascript objects stay open as per default,
because blocking these could make websites disfunctional or crash.

Chrome however witholds "if-none-match-headers" from "onBefore Send Headers"
(cache informatie will be sent , only incoming e-Tags will be blocked).

Understand that everything in the Google Chrome Browser has been designed
to be able to better support Google Chrome's core business,
which is data-tracking and data-monitoring of data par excellence
as a business model and to support commercial and western intelligence & or surveillance agencies. 

They will sell all of your data, they can obtain from you, the end-user as their main product.

Checking the workings of blocking inside the browser or the present irrevelance of this, can be done here:

Privacy does not exist anymore in the year 2018.
Do not share on the Interwebs info you do not like to share with others,

An extension to work next to and improve the workings of Trace can be Decentraleyes,
according to an unique concept.


It is a web browser extension that emulates Content Delivery Networks to protect your privacy.
