This add-on looks rather interesting.
Anyone here use it?

I haven't tried it, but read some of the reviews.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lightbeam/reviews/?page=3

And a couple of quotes here:

"Concerned that this will frighten people into damaging site functionality

As an owner of several sites I find this both interesting (and potentially useful) and at the same time worrying. It could well frighten people into blocking site links that provide important site functionality.

I tested it with two of my own very innocuous UK tourism sites. Do you really want to scare people into blocking Pinterest, Instagram, Google Analytics and Google fonts? I assume not, but it could easily have this unintended consquence".

"Sheer awesomeness

This made me switch from Chrome to Firefox".

I think it would be a shock to the internet advertising business if they found out that 99 percent of people were using a minimal links browser or suchlike.

Erm, yes please.

"This is a Jetpack/SDK extension which are not supported in Pale Moon 27.5.1". Awwww I want to try it out, but...

Lightbeam is a Firefox add-on that enables you to see the first and third party sites you interact with on the Web. Using interactive visualizations, Lightbeam shows you the relationships between these third parties and the sites you visit.
I think it has an advantage.
