Collusion is now available for Safari (5.1 and up), over on our tools page! As promised, we’ve brought the awesome Collusion Firefox add-on made by Mozilla to yet another browser. Collusion for Safari was born at the Wall Street Journal’s Data Transparency Weekend, which we helped put together and run. We developed the extension along with a bunch of friendly hackers we met there and elsewhere. To take a look at their contributions (or, if you’re a coder, contribute yourself!), go to the project repo.
We’ve also added three big features (and a lot more little ones) to the Chrome extension. Version 1.5 lets you (1) block over 800 tracking sites, (2) see a real-time tally of the sites connected to the one you’re on, and (3) view third- and lower-level domain names untruncated (bbc.co.uk not co.uk). These features (except the second) are in the Safari extension, too. If you have Collusion for Chrome, you’ve been autoupdated already or will be soon. If you don’t, this extension is likewise available on our tools page.Posted by Brian Kennish
