The browser privacy plugin
Blocks third-party requests and cookies for a cleaner, safer and more private web experience
When Parley finds third-party requests on a web page, it will pop up an icon in the address bar, similar to the built-in popup blocker. If you click on that icon, you can explicitely unblock some of the reqeusts (ie. if you really enjoy having Facebook like buttons on a webpage, or need one of the CSS files to load.)
WARNING: This is an early alpha release. There are known bugs. If you would like to test this release now, chances are it will break a lot of pages, especially Wordpres blogs (some may say they end up looking better for it).
Important: The current releases are more suited for developers who know what they are doing, can read a JS console log to help report bugs, and will generally not get frustrated by stuff not working. Please don't post or publish anything about this plugin until I can get a stable release out. Thanks.
I am updating releases daily. Auto-update isn't built in to this test build, yet, so you if you do install the alpha build, make sure you come back and grab newer versions as they are released.

If you have any todo suggestions, email me on nikcub at gmail. After content blocking, I will be adding features to block cookie setting, anonymizing requests with proxy servers, etc. The intention is to make Parley a general privacy plugin.
@TODO backwards-compat third-party cookie blocking. ie. if you check 'block third party cookies' from now, it will still send the old already set cookies. write a function to take intersection of chrome.history and chrome.cookie to rm third-party cookies
