I think "Common Tracking Methods" should be at the top of the page before the add-on recommendations, atleast if the idea is to educate people about privacy. The browser-specific instructions should come next. Leave the add-on suggestions for last. If you list add-ons right awa right away, people who don't already know about these add-ons might think you're trying to push them to install stuff that might hurt them (we're all taught to be careful about what we install on our computers).

If you list add-ons right away a lot of people would be skeptic and distrust you innitially because it comes accross as if you're trying to push people to install add-ons, and we're all taught that we shouldn't install random software we see online. If you educate first and then give low-risk small steps they can take (browser-specific instructions), it gives a better impression and they might be more willing to try the add-ons.

(Obviously what I mean is that you can have all sorts of extensions installed to protect your privacy, but if your browser is syncing, then Google still has all your info)

You might also want to mention browsing in Chrome while signed in (as well as syncing). It's obvious to us but might not be obvious to some novice users.

I think the MVPS Hosts file should definitely be on fixtracking.com (as well as donttrack.us)
While it's not as simple as installing an extension, it has the benefit that you can use it with niche browsers (e.g., accessibility, terminal, etc) and works in PC/Mac/Linux as well as Android/iPhone. If you're afraid it's too difficult to install for the average user, you could create a separate "Advanced users" section at the bottom of the page.

EFF.org Privacy Badger extension is also pretty good too but isn't listed. How come?
