Privacy Badger is a web browser add-on that automatically blocks trackers, adverts, and anything else that appears to be invading your online privacy. It's a product of the Electronic Freedom Foundation, which has been in existence for about as long as the web has been around.
Although it has a range of options that you can tune in order to tweak its performance to your liking, it works pretty well if you just leave everything alone and allow the program to get on with its job.
To install it, just fire up the browser with which you want to use it, then head to https://www.eff.org/privacybadger to download it automatically. I've tried it with Chrome and Firefox, and it seems to perform very well.
If you've used Privacy Badger before, note that an all-new version 2.0 was released earlier this week, so make sure you're running the latest updates.
