    Just curious if running both DNT Plus and Cookie Monster (rejects all cookies by default) is an overkill?

    im sure it is just set cookies to enable and uncheck 3rd party cookies , go and get selfdestructing cookies addon , itll remove cookies from the tab youve opened as soon as you close it depending on your preference , its better than rejecting all cookies by default since you do have sites where you require cookies , like forums etc , where you require them in order to stay logged in as long as you have that tab open for the site youve opened , thats the quickest and most efficient way to have one time use cookies literally , of course as usual have that browser of yours virtualized , except your bookmarks and extensions , and youll have a clean browser on every startup

    and about dnt plus , its a nice little addon but if some advertising company would really want to track you dnt plus doesnt do much in order to stop them thou, from what ive heard , just saying

    One is blacklist and the other is whitelist. DoNotTrackMe blocks more than just cookies. Might be overkill, but they don't replace each other.

    They do different things, DNT+ is for trackers & Cookiemonster is for cookies. Keep them both, they get a long well together.
