Recently I did quite a research about internet browser related privacy. It hit me hard in the flesh myself, since I was part of the victims in the [WOT fiasco]1]. So I found out that usually way over 90% of anonymized (not really, though) data is collected nowadays over browser plugins. It has become popular that the good old enemy cookies isn't even an issue anymore, because data collecting services already operate almost completely independent of any cookies.
Now my issue: I have a lot of browser plugins. I do. But ironically 90% of my browser plugins are ad blockers, track blockers, script blockers, cookie blockers, etc. Since Web of Trust it is obviously proven that you can't really trust anyone.
My question: What is more private (usage pattern wise, of course not IP wise): having no plugins and facing every tracking possible or having privacy related plugins and possibly being spied on by them? I'd prefer a pro and con list of both options.
Is this question "primarily opinion based" or are there some harsh truths favouring the one over the other?
