I am a new user of Privacy Suite and DNT+.
I have DNT+ installed on Firefox, chromium, and SRWare Iron in Linuxmint-13 Mate 64 bit version.
I have Privacy Suite installed on Firefox, and I have DNT+ installed on SRWare Iron browser In Windows XP Home SP3 with all updates.
As a new user, I can report some things I found odd about this software:
1. There is no way to easily find out what version of DNT+ or Privacy Suite I am using from a drop-down menu, like we do with other software.
To find the version, we must go into the browser tools> manage extensions> to see what version is installed, or search through forums to try to figure it out. It would be nice if we could see a Do Not Track Plus version 18.104.22.1680 across the window title bar, or at a menu from the window> help> About DNT+
2. Both Privacy Suite and DNT+ installed easily, and immediately began blocking data tracking. But after awhile, I noticed not everything was blocked. Some trackers such as Gigya, facebook, and tweet were set to track me, and I had to manually set to stop them from tracking. In most security programs, I see there are several levels of security available, which includes a way to set it to block everything, or blocking to allow a reasonable recommended functionality, or to turn off blocking (which DNT and Security Suite has). But for a new user, he doesn't know that he is not fully protected from tracking because there was no popup window when he installed DNT to tell him his security was set to allow certain trackers. I understand that these trackers are necessary to visit some sites because they run widgets that the site display depends on. When we consider that the people who install DNT+ and Security Suite are generally interested in privacy, maybe it would be better to install with everything blocked, and a popup menu that allows the user to choose between full blocked, recommended settings, or turn off blocking, or let them make custom settings to open leaks to their security as they wish.
3. The (Not recommended) note in the old UI is a good notice that helps us know this particular tracker may be needed for a particular website to work, so we will know to enable it first on a page that doesn't work. Hopefully this kind of note will find its way to the new interface, or at least color-coding for the trackers that are not recommended to enable. I see this notice is in the DNT+ UI, but not in the new interface for Privacy Suite.
4. I was not able to find any custom settings for specified websites, other than to turn Privacy Suite off at a specified website. For some websites, it may be necessary to keep one or two trackers enabled in order to use the site. Is it possible to to keep all the blocking turned on except a single one or two trackers that are needed, -- and then that tracker is blocked again as soon as you leave the specified website?
5. I have not been able to determine if we can make custom blocking configurations for specified websites as described in 4, above. But from my viewpoint as a new user, I would want everything locked down at installation. Then a configuration menu to pop up and allow me to choose among recommended settings throughout the software in either easy mode or advanced mode. ie: Easy mode you click recommended settings and go, or you click full blocking (warning will make some websites un-viewable) and go. Advanced setting lets you set up custom settings for various websites, various trackers etc, and sets the UI preferences or whatever details are adjustable.
Finally, I am not your typical PC user. My comments above are from a person who uses the computer primarily to generate technical spreadsheets and reports, never uses any social network, but does hours of search and research on several search engines, usually to find obscure technical information. There are several technical forums I sign into and read as well as post in, and keep cookies for these. But I have been in the habit to manually sign in for years, so I don't use "remember me" or auto sign-in services. My reason for wanting DNT+ is so I can stop getting targeted search results, and to stop any kind of profiling on my browsing.
Hope this feedback helps
