    I'm assuming this is only provided for Google Chrome (with the built-in Flash Player)?

    Chromium builds have no such option...

    This is not a Google feature even tough I'm sure Google would like to spin it as one :shifty: It's a flash 10.3 feature which I assume Google is getting their hands on slightly earlier as they do.

    Yes, that's correct. I just figured it out... -http://blog.chromium.org/

    I've been enjoying the removal of "flash cookies" when I close IE for quite some time now: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1853360&postcount=4

    If you install the 10.3 release candidate and use that in Chromium you might achieve the same results. I mainly use Chrome portable so I couldn't say for sure.

    I downloaded the RC some days ago... I've been lazy to uninstall and install the RC. :D

    Looks good, but Flash cookies don't escape my Sandboxie in the first place.

    And that's the bottom line ! No harm in having such elegant protection with unnoticeable overhead.
