RegExPal ~ Added: 09 Dec 2013 12:31
When working with IDS/IPS systems, you often have to evaluate complex Regex values in order to determine how a signature works. The captured data packets can often include strings of characters written in regular expressions, or "regex". As such, tools like this site are a great help to assist in evaluating strings and calculations. In fact, it was with help from this tool I was able to create and modify the following regex expressions to evaluate various public and specific IP address ranges:

Social Fixer ~ Added: 16 Oct 2013 13:25
This add-on for every major browser, allows you to customize Facebook through many seamless customizations, including adding tabs, removing ads, adding a friend tracker, among other things. Unfortunately, most of those features are soon going to be removed, because of pressure from Facebook placed on the author to do so. The next version therefore, will not have these features.
Unfortunately, those features are the main reason I use it. Therefore, I'm hosting the last full-featured version on this site, at least until Facebook changes their code so much that it ceases to work well. This ZIP file contains the installs for each of the major browser versions.

Mobiwol NoRoot Firewall ~ Added: 28 Nov 2013 06:35
For the less paranoid in the crowd, those who can't or are afraid to root their devices, this is a helpful alternative. The one drawback to this app is that you have to manually turn it on after every reboot.
The way Mobiwol works without requiring root access is that it manages all traffic at the connection level, through a VPN. You allow or deny each application access based on connection type, or only allow communication when it is the foreground application.
So, while this won't stop software from acquiring accurate information about you or your device if you do allow it to connect, you can at least limit if and/or when each app is able to do so. Let me give you a few examples:
Game 1: block all communications with the Internet, in order to block the application from spying on you, altogether
While this isn't perfect, it's a considerably better alternative than the default.
Finally, Mobiwol maintains connection logs, so you can see exactly what tried to communicate with the Internet and when. You can see what was allowed and what was blocked as well as the destination address. This additional information can help you decide if you want to continue to allow the app to have access, or perhaps if you want to delete it, altogether. You can even adjust an app's permission right from the connection logs, by clicking on the entry and adjusting the settings.
