What is P3P?
P3P is a W3C-ratified XML standard that websites can use to publish their privacy policies in a machine-readable form. User agents (formal name for software tools on the client end) can read these, and perform a variety of tasks, such as notifying the user or even changing the transaction (such as not accepting cookies).
Why Privacy Fox?
- The best browser tool for P3P translation is AT&T's Privacy Bird, but it is IE-specific. This is an attempt to create a simple version for Firefox, given its user-base's bias towards privacy.
How do I install and run Privacy Fox?
Look at the installation page.
