    quick and easy question here.

    i've been trying out Ghostery the past week and i kinda like it. is there a stand-alone installer for this Ghostery so i can install it on a friends pc or mine whenever i re-installed the browser?

    i have downloaded the FF/Opera version here with me through softpedia. but for the chrome browsers i can't do using FF and Opera.

    is there someway i can back-it-up and save it for later installation?

    or, perhaps a safe download link where i can get the stand-alone installer(if there is one).

    thanks :)

    From what I see, Ghostery comes in extensions/add-ons/plugins.
    You can download the extension, save it in your computer or USB flash drive.
    Whenever you want to install it, simply drag it to the browser.

    For example in Firefox.
    Download this file using Internet Explorer: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/9609/ghostery-2.5.3-fx+sm.xpi
    Save it. To install in Firefox, simply drag the file to Firefox which will install without downloading.
