Ghoster blocks trackers and ads and helps to speed up your browsing experience. Just head to the store for your particular browser to install or go to https://www.ghostery.com/

Once you install Ghostery, a little blue ghost will display at the top of your browser.

The number next to the ghost shows you how many issues Ghostery has found on the page.
