Firefox releases the Facebook Container Extension blog.mozilla.org

Submitted by DissidentRage in Tech

Very interesting development:

This extension helps you control more of your web activity from Facebook by isolating your identity into a separate container. This makes it harder for Facebook to track your activity on other websites via third-party cookies.

Rather than stop using a service you find valuable and miss out on those adorable photos of your nephew, we think you should have tools to limit what data others can collect about you. That includes us: Mozilla does not collect data from your use of the Facebook Container extension. We only know the number of times the extension is installed or removed.

I have a much better idea.

Edit your HOSTS file and add the following line:

0.0.0.0 facebook.com

And there you have it. Actually you don't have it anymore, because that line will break every single link or piece of code running on the system that tries to connect to Zark Fuckerberg's Magical Privacy Raping Machine.
