A little app that makes the web a lot better

Nowadays, the web is cluttered with advertising, analytics, and social widgets. These widgets slow down the pages you go to, send your personal info to tracking companies, and expose you to attackers.
Disconnect puts you in control of your data for faster, more private, more secure browsing. And unlike other filtering apps, Disconnect is optimized for speed. Pages use 17 percent less bandwidth and load 27 percent faster with Disconnect.

Disabling Ghostery and going to give this a test spin to see how it performs.

I did a quick comparison here with 3 websites, Ghostery VS Disconnect.

Screenshots can be viewed here.

I'm going to stick with using Ghostery since it actually has a Settings page with various options in it where Disconnect doesn't.

As for blocking ability's I would have to test a hundred websites and compare before I would pick which one has better blocking.

Thanks. ;)
