Did you ever search for a product on the Internet and after you bought it you kept on seeing banners promoting the product you just bought? That's just irrational and there's a fix it: AVG's Chrome extension Crumble.
How does it work?
Crumble intercepts 3rd party cookies and controls what information is sent back to the web tracking companies, stopping trackers from following and profiling you via cookies based on the sites you visit. Because, we control rather than block 3rd party cookies, you will get the full website experience; no broken plugins, no missing content, no weird behaviour. But wait! There’s more! Unlike other extensions that promise you a similar thing, we are doing all this by identifying the type of the cookie and not by keeping a blacklist of trackers. This allows us to block new trackers as soon as they appear. No waiting time, no updating any list. Instant action. This also means that we do not offer preferential treatment to trackers (aka whitelist them) unlike some other extensions.

What I brought to the table
Chrome extensions come with their own set of rules and like we know restrictions force creativity. Next to a self explanatory UI, enforced by the use of vivid colours I also came up with the name of the extension: Crumble. Claiming your presence in between other extensions, within Chrome's toolbar, also turned out to be a challenge which we overcame.
Reviews are great and if you want to give it a try you can find the extension here.
