Popular websites now attach to 30 or more servers

Post by jasimon9 » Wed Apr 30, 2014 5:11 am

When I start using a new browser (or clear all my rules for an existing browser), I find that many popular websites causes Little Snitch to report 20, 30, or even 40 servers that it wants permission to attach to. Many of these sites are ad suppliers or trackers and in the past I would block them. But it seems nowadays with so many servers needed that manually approving them is no longer practical.

For example, many sites want to connect to facebook, twitter and linkedin. Yet I also recognize ones like doubleclick and so on. With so many requests, it has become impractical to review them all.

So do I have to give in and just open up a browser to make any connection anywhere?
