Ghostery do-not-track tool released for Android as a standalone Privacy Browser

You know Ghostery, right? It's been a godsend as a privacy extension tool for your Chrome or Firefox browsers on the desktop, and is now available as a standalone browser for Android. That's right, one of the best tracker-killers out there can be perused on your Android phone or tablet for your daily Internet scouring needs.

At first brush Ghostery for Android is your typical everyday run-of-the-mill browsing machine, of which there tens in the Play Store. It lets you visit websites, uses tabs for switching between the ones you have loading or active at the moment, and has a few settings for history, cookies, cache and so on.

The added value, however, is Ghostery's impressive machinarium for detecting and blocking trackers of all sorts - ranging at "scripts from Facebook, Google, and hundreds of other ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers - all companies interested in your activity." Naturally, this track blocker includes ads and pop-ups blocking, too, so you are left with a pure, unadulterated web experience, knowing full well that advertisers and publishers won't be allowed in your little corner of the World Wide Web any time soon. Check it out from the link below if you are interested.
