    Hi there,

    Recently I stepped over an article mentioned 'evercookie' as something you CAN NOT delete. Is there anything out there e.g. browser settings, ad-ons or anti-malware that could help with this persisting cookies. I see them as a severe privacy threat. Thanks.

    I've seen a link mentioned here where it shows how to deal with Silverlight. But, after the content loads, it still goes blank, and right-clicking won't do nothing.

    I use Chromium, by the way. No movie based on Silverlight will play, at all. It just gets blank.

    I wonder if this is an issue just with Chromium.

    Something like Returnil could help as when you reboot everything is gone. Anytime I am on the internet I have virtual mode enabled. There are also cookie addons for Firefox but I don't know if they block evercookies.
