New browser add-on gives users estimate of how much 'free' web services are making from their personal data.

"A new browser add-on offers users an estimate of how much 'free' internet services like Google and Facebook are making from their personal data.

Just released for the Firefox and Chrome browsers, Privacyfix scans users' Google and Facebook accounts and shows how they are tracking and sharing your online activities to make money.

The add-on then gives a rough estimate as to how valuable they are to these companies, based on their use of the services. 'We wanted people to understand, it is a value exchange,' said the program's creator Jim Brock."

My feeling is that Google is extremely untrustworthy anyway (I don't do Facebook)
