The Privacy Badger (https://www.eff.org/privacybadger) is a new, free browser extension that aims to make your web surfing experience faster and safer. It is available for both Chrome and Firefox, and allows you to control the way that websites use trackers, cookies and other techniques to gather personal data about you and your internet usage.
This helps to reduce your overall bandwidth usage, as well as improving your online privacy. It should hopefully also reduce the number of ads you see which are spookily relevant to information you've been browsing recently.
Around 250,000 people have already started using the Badger since it was released in alpha test form by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The software is now officially at version 1.0 and ready for everyone to try.
