Thanks for providing a more direct link that shows all supported browsers. Not just FF.

Will it work on IE10-64?

Ghostery does not work on all browsers. It does not work on IE 10 64 bit. This is the browser where it is most needed too. Plus, to use Ghostery on the versions of IE where it does work the user MUST be logged into an ADMIN ACCOUNT.

The current version does NOT work on Opera. You must use an old version on Opera 12+. (Many Opera users do not consider Opera 15 to be Opera but if you do use that Chrome imitation then you can use the latest Ghostery on it).

Is this the revised version that fixes the mess that 5.0 was earlier? I don't want a wrecked SeaMonkey or Fx and the earlier 5.0 was a disaster. I have 2.9.6 currently.

Yep. Exactly what I thought. It doesn't work with Fx 17SR. There was considerable discussion about this at Ghostery forums. The developers are very aware of Mozilla's suicidal tendencies and how others have to eventually step in and try and save Mozilla from itself. Fx 17ESR will not automatically internally update until around Dec 1 so I'll be using 2.96 until then.

Threads here should NOT erroneously state there is a new Ghostery version that works with "all web browsers". Ghostery does not work with IE10 64 bit or Fx 17 ESR which is FULLY SUPPORTED AS CURRENT ESR BROWSER UNTIL AROUND DECEMBER 1 WHEN INTERNAL UPDATING TO THE NEW ESR VERSION WILL OCCUR.

EDIT: Ghostery 5.0.4 is NOT available for SeaMonkey 2.20 either. It's not available for hardly any browsers.
