Sounds good for those of you who are privacy minded. Hopefully there's some bug fixes and what not hidden away in there too, so if you have Flash, upgrade.

It's great that they're doing it, if you use flashblock you always see random flashblocks on pages that don't need flash which is a clearly designed to track you (GMail, CNBC, 9000000 other sites).

I use better privacy which deletes LSOs every 10 minutes so this is a moot point for me though
