In order to escape the spying activities of several main actors of the web, we should add to the advertisement block list of Epiphany the list of spying tools URL grabbed from Ghostery, the Firefox extension. This way these companies won't be able to know what our children like or dislike anymore :).
The Ghostery block list seems to be stored in Json format at the following URL:

The json file can be easily parsed using Python:
import json f=open("ghostery-blacklist.json") d=json.load(f) f.close() r=[x["pattern"] for x in d["bugs"]] print '\n'.join(r).replace('\\', '')
There are 4 categories of URL's of various length:
>>> d.keys() [u'lsos', u'surrogates', u'bugsVersion', u'bugs'] >>> [len(d[x]) for x in d.keys()] [439, 23, 2, 1048]
