- HTTPS Everywhere
- HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS.
- RequestPolicy's new version is under development as RequestPolicy Continued. This addon prevents all connections to external domains or IPs from any website you visit, this means no connections to external advertisement hosters, analytics not on their servers and more things that you might not want to connect to or load. Saves bandwidth and privacy. It does require you to give explicit permission for these connections to happen, which is easily done with a drop-down menu of attempted connections and whether you wish to allow them each permanently or temporarily.
- The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) is a project to build, deploy, and maintain a network supporting secure and anonymous communication. People using I2P are in control of the tradeoffs between anonymity, reliability, bandwidth usage, and latency. There is no central point in the network on which pressure can be exerted to compromise the integrity, security, or anonymity of the system. The network supports dynamic reconfiguration in response to various attacks, and has been designed to make use of additional resources as they become available. Of course, all aspects of the network are open and freely available. Unlike many other anonymizing networks, I2P doesn't try to provide anonymity by hiding the originator of some communication and not the recipient, or the other way around. I2P is designed to allow peers using I2P to communicate with each other anonymously — both sender and recipient are unidentifiable to each other as well as to third parties. For example, today there are both in-I2P web sites (allowing anonymous publishing / hosting) as well as HTTP proxies to the normal web (allowing anonymous web browsing).
- Disconnect lets you visualize and block the otherwise invisible websites that track your search and browsing history.
- Load the pages you go to 27% faster.
- Stop tracking by 2,000+ third-party sites.
- Encrypt the data you share with popular sites.
- Using interactive visualizations, Lightbeam enables you to see the first and third party sites you interact with on the Web. As you browse, Lightbeam reveals the full depth of the Web today, including parts that are not transparent to the average user. Using three distinct interactive graphic representations — Graph, Clock and List — Lightbeam enables you to examine individual third parties over time and space, identify where they connect to your online activity and provides ways for you to engage with this unique view of the Web.
- Email service that allows a person to create an almost infinite amount of unique email addresses that the user can give to 3rd party websites. This lets the user have more control of their identity/privacy and keeps their personal email address free of junk.
