Post Test Your Browser for Tracking Protection

This site will test your browser for how well it blocks website tracking. Not all browsers are equal. Brave did a really good job including against fingerprinting. With the extensions I have installed my installs of Firefox, Waterfox and Opera blocked tracking ads and invisible trackers but did not give protection from fingerprinting. Edge was the worst as it did not provide any protection at all.

Im pretty sure Edge was designed as a tracking tool and spyware. There appears to be an ongoing battle over browser tracking. Im encountering more websites that throw up messages demanding that things like ad blockers, VPN and tracking blockers be disabled to visit their site. Fook em. They can shove their websites up their rectum.

Tor Browser or Brave over Tor are really your best bets for tracking privacy.

Our tests indicate that you have strong protection against Web tracking.

Using brave on all devices for a while now.

NoScript is another very good tool to help against this sort of thing. Available for both Firefox and Chromium (I stay away from Google's closed-source Chrome).

Also, Konqueror has a configurable browser ID string. You can have it report whichever browser you wish, i. e. you can tell Konqueror to appear as if it's Opera, Microsoft Internet Exploder, Firefox, Google Chrome, or whatever else. You also can tell it not to report a browser string at all.
