TrackMeNot is a lightweight browser extension that helps protect web searchers from surveillance and data-profiling by search engines. It does so not by means of concealment or encryption (i.e. covering ones tracks), but instead, paradoxically, by the opposite strategy: noise and obfuscation. With TrackMeNot, actual web searches, lost in a cloud of false leads, are essentially hidden in plain view. User-installed TrackMeNot works with the Firefox Browser and popular search engines (AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and MSN) and requires no 3rd-party servers or services. How It Works TrackMeNot runs in Firefox as a low-priority background process that periodically issues randomized search-queries to popular search engines, e.g., AOL, Yahoo!, Google, and MSN. It hides users actual search trails in a cloud of ghost queries, significantly increasing the difficulty of aggregating such data into accurate or identifying user profiles. As of version 0.4, TMNs static word list has been replaced with a dynamic query mechanism which evolves each client (uniquely) over time, parsing the results of its searches for logical future query terms with which to replace those already used. New in version 0.5.x Firefox 3.x compatibility Realtime Search-Tracking Dynamic URL/Header Matching Burst-Mode (default: off) Cookie-Anonymization (default: off) Improved Timing Mechanism Improved Logging (cookie-actions, etc.) Minor bug fixes
