I've been using Ghostery for a while now, but recently have been questioning whether or not it's actually worth using.

I also came across an article from the end of July of last year talking about how it actually benefits larger advertising companies by selling their data back to them or something, but I have no idea how credible this article is (found here: http://venturebeat.com/2012/07/31/ghostery-a-web-tracking-blocker-that-actually-helps-the-ad-industry/)

So I was wondering what you all think about Ghostery in general, as well as if it's really necessary if you're already using something like NoScript.
Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.
