Gorilla Design Studio Presents: Using the Hosts File

Every day, millions of people browse the web. They think they are doing so in private. They aren't. What advertisers don't want you to know, I will tell you. You are being tracked as you surf the web, right now. Not by me, but by some of the advertisers.

They think they have a right to track your surfing habits, under the veil of providing a "better" browsing experience. They claim that, by knowing everything that you look at while you are surfing, they can give you "better" ads.

What they don't tell you is that they also sell information about your habits to third-parties. What they don't tell you is that they could easily match your browsing profile with your identity. What they don't tell you, in essence, is that they are violating your privacy.

What they don't tell you, is that you can do something about it. Use the Hosts file! Use DNSKong!


Now Macintosh users can use the Hosts file as well!

Unix-style OS users also have their own directions.
