Another good reason to choose the Firefox engine

Post by mbrazil » Tue Feb 26, 2013 1:00 am

From Slashdot:

"Stanford researcher Jonathan Mayer has contributed a Firefox patch that will block third-party cookies by default. It's now on track to land in version 22. Kudos to Mozilla for protecting their users and being so open to community submissions. The initial response from the online advertising industry is unsurprisingly hostile and blustering, calling the move 'a nuclear first strike.'"

Internet Explorer isn't set up to block 3rd party cookies by default, but I've been using that option for years now....
(Duck! It's another MicroSoft Patch!)
