Clean URLs for sharing purposes or simply to be a little more secure and private, without having to worry about any search and info tracking issues
If you are one of the individuals concerned with your privacy or with sharing clean, short URLs, then you should definitely give ClearURLs a try. It’s a simple and intuitive add-on, for Firefox and other browsers, created in order to make the use of URLs easier and safer.
It will help you double-check that your browsing sessions are not tracked by other third-parties, and, at the same time, it will clean these URLs for your convenience. Afterward, you can post, share or simply stock them for future use.
The interface is simple and intuitive
Yes, when talking about tracking and privacy, you automatically imagine it’s a difficult process you must be a part of in order to have successful results. This is not true for ClearURLs due to the fact that it has very few, well selected, options.
The rest is exclusively managed by the extension. It’s also worth noting that its search results and successful blocks are registered in a nice looking progress bar. As a result, you will always have proof of this add-on’s efficiency.
Where do I, the user, come in?
While you may feel like you don’t have many choices to make, that’s not entirely the case. There is plenty for you to adjust. First of all, you get to choose when to activate the URL filter, the extension log, badges and when to deactivate them. You can also individually log dirty URLs for the add-on to clean.
Subsequently, you can also keep track of your work with ClearURLs when you need to check that particular aspect. Don’t like seeing the statistic all the time in the add-on menu? Turn that feature off. The displayed window will be instantly reduced in size and your browser will feel less crowded.
ClearURLs is an add-on you must try if you would like to keep an eye on your privacy and want to have decent-looking URLs to share with your friends. It’s simple to use and offers quite a number of features. It’s secure, and it does not nag you with useless reminders. It’s there for you to use when you need or want it.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used ClearURLs for Firefox and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
