Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (BETA)

Anyone knows about Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (BETA). Apparently if you don't want your personal information and browsing activities to be collected and share with the rest of the world, you HAVE to install this obscure, almost hidden, and buried Google add-on.

Any experience insights regarding this add-on?

As long as it is a "add-on" on Google I would *never* trust that the data is not collected through
the backdoor... Google lives from accurate data flow collection of the whole community.

For a safer ride on the net a anonymous proxy server might be a better alternative. There can be
found various proxies on the net. One should check some feedback/complaints about existing offers.
Tested already various - one is Keep Your Internet Browsing Private, Safe, And Secure!.

I'm using it plus another one called "disconnect". Seems to work. It does not stop the tracking when you browse a store like Amazon, but that I don't mind.

At times "disconnect" is a bit too useful because e.g. it stops Twitter to show the avatars of its users. Because of that I have unblocked Twitter.

I delete all cookies occasionally, there are also Adobe Flash cookies. You have to delete them separately.

Check out Ghostery (Ghostery). It's a free plugin for all major browsers that blocks all sorts of trackers, including Google. I'm using it together with the "Cookies" App from the Mac App Store.

Still not sure if the privacy is really guaranteed.
The "Opt-Out-Browser Add-on" from Google is only deactivating the Javascript to track IP of a user - the "where come
I from page" and the "where I am going to page". But in the cookies some information is still registered.
So that nice Goog tool is putting sand in the eye of the user.

Found an article from 2010 when GOOG was introducing this path.
Article is in german: "http://www.golem.de/1005/75336.html" and german buyer organizations are complaining that
the tool is conflicting with german jurisprudence.

In any case - I would abstrain from using any tool provided by the company to protect some "threat" by the SAME
company.

Think about it...
