User reviews
There is no way to audit that this extension is even doing what it claims to do. You do not share the source at all and your company is a web analytics company. A little shady to me that a web analytics company puts out an extension to block web analytics. Until you provide the source code to audit this and ensure you are not actually adding more tracking for your own business, 1 star.
