A lot of websites track their users these days. Whereas this is especially true for social networks, other sites also pitch in with their share. While not all of this is bad, and some tracking is quite useful for users, it is always better to know about it. The well-known team, Disconnect, has now released a tool for Chrome ‘Collusion for Chrome’ which maps all the tracking sites on a neat graph for you to view it.


The Disconnect team formerly created a similar extension for Firefox users, also called Collusion. The extension would let the users view the sites tracking them in a separate tab. Collusion is able to detect wherever the data from your machine is going and then creates a tangled mesh of all the websites that keep tabs on you.

The Collusion for Chrome tool, however, is far more detailed and more useful than the Firefox version. Why? Because Mozilla primarily sniffs out tracking sites through cookie-based searches. The Chrome version, on the other hand, goes for a far more details scan. This is summed in the words of Brian Kennish, a part of the Disconnect team, ‘there are many signals besides [cookies] that can identify users for tracking purposes: IP addresses, LSOs (Flash cookies), and browser fingerprinting. Collusion for Chrome catches all these cases.’

This can be tested in real-time by getting the tool to generate a map of tracking sites on both browsers, for the same websites. Collusion for Chrome is able to come up with a far more details map with lot more connections than does the Mozilla version.

The only catch with the Chrome version of Collusion is that it maps the graph in a pop-up windows which eventually becomes too small if you open more websites and more links have to be mapped. Collusion on Firefox, however, creates the map in a separate tab on the browser and is fairly better in the aesthetics.
