Award for most pointless app

Sorry but that thing is the biggest load of ... If you really think that browsing other websites is going to hide the sites you already visit, then you deserve phorm.

So you don't trust phorm but trust some unkown app, that pulls unkown URLs. All you will end up doing is slightly alter the ads you get served, your personal data is still intercepted by phorm. Just move ISP.

Sooo

They say they don't collect form data.

Yes but the next page may have the info not in a form tag. eg confirmation page. Doesn't have to be ssl as were not yet entering credit card info. Eg small sites who take your address then forward you to paypal etc. Also forums and the preview post page, private massages, Webmail etc. You can eventually build up enough info to work out who someone is.

How are they going to be able to deal with forums?

They say they go by a phrase being on the page several times. SO if I'm reading a thread on a forum and the user named Imac has posted several times do I get gay computer ads?

Names are not collected.

What's a name?. Poor Guy Kawasaki nothing but bike ads for him!
