    I can't update the first post anymore but Chrome stable 17.963.65 is patched and the bug report is marked as fixed. Problem officially solved. :)

    I'm on Chrome 17.0.963.79 (Ubuntu 11.10). I have specified that cookies from zedo.com are to be blocked. I make sure cookies from zedo.com aren't listed in Wrench, Preferences, Under the Hood, Content Settings, All Cookies and Site Data. I also have entered zedo.com >> block in Manage Exceptions. I close the browser.

    I re-open it and go to -http://www.business-standard.com/india/bsonline.php-. Exit Chrome. Go back to All Cookies and Site Data and see seven cookies listed against zedo.com.

    PS: I have not ticked "Block third-party cookies and site data".

    Hmm, I can't reproduce this on Chromium 19.0.1075.0 but I don't have access to my VMs for a few days to try in Chrome. Maybe do a bug search or report?

    I think Chrome 18 (stable) will be okay and that's the milestone: "Labels: -Mstone-17 Mstone-18 Merge-Requested"

    Thanks for all of this. I just downloaded and installed the latest versions of Chrome and Chromium.

    Seriously, what's so surprising? Google - one of world's worst privacy violators (not an opinion) + Chrome - made by Google.

    Let's see... what business is google in?

    What do people expect? If you walk into a seedy bar, do you expect to find a bus load of Evangelists?
