Interesting information! But I've "opted out" of all types of advertising as far as I can help it.
Don't you think opting out cookies will just add cookies in your session although it will no longer deliver tailored ads, it might have the ability to track your browsing habit? Am I right?
I'm not really well-versed in this cookie business. I run my browser Sandboxied and empty the box on exit.
So I guess the next day if I visit a site, I'm a brand-new visitor?
No, usually an opt out cookie is generic and therefore contains no ID one could track.
This is useless. Blocking 3rd party cookies will block 99% of these cookies. Add a hosts file to that and empty cookies on browser exit.
I use per site whitelisting in Firefox and make use of both session and permanent cookies. In the past I used CS Lite for this but with version 3 or was it 3.5 the built in tools are adequate.
Separate names with a comma.
