I Do All Of This On Firefox

Firefox's privacy mode stops your computer from keeping track of where you've browsed, but it doesn't do anything about external tracking.

 A new feature just rolled out to the Developer Edition and the Aurora channel now actively tries to block online services from tracking you.

 "Our hypothesis is that when you open a Private Browsing window in Firefox you're sending a signal that you want more control over your privacy than current private browsing experiences actually provide." 

The feature uses a blocklist maintained by Disconnect.me to stop you from navigating to sites known to log your personal data.
