Yes this would prevent them from re-creating normal cookies on your machine through the use of supercookie unique IDs which is basically just anoter cookie for flash which BetterPrivacy(FF)/Click&Clean(Chrome) does clean out.

That's just crap to supposedly block torrent tracking businesses. But of course it doesn't work since they don't monitor from their business line; they use home connections to do their work. Has nothing to do with this article which is how websites track their visitors.
I'll list some privacy protection setups for FF and Chrome(in progress):
Be sure to check "delete default cookie" and "delete by timer" > uncheck "not if modified by"
- Beef Taco
Sets non-personally identifiable opt-out cookies for hundreds of sites
Change default settings to "forge" root of site and manually exempt sites you trust as you visit them. (or about:config
> "network.http.sendRefererHeader = 0" to never send any)
- Stop AutoPlay
Better than FlashBlock because it also blocks embedded media and silverlight (would also stop supercookies which tend to be 0 pixel flash embeds to steal lots of info through flash which you have no control of. see: http://browserspy.dk/flash.php
- Redirect Remover
Removes redirect tracking from urls
Creates fake searches in the background from popular news headlines to prevent any meaningful profile being able to be made out of your normal searches through google/bing/yahoo/etc.
- Adblock Plus
Be sure to do Filters > add filter subscription > EasyList, Fanboy's List, Adversity, Adblockrules.org, Antisocial List.
- Remove blocking notification messages and uncheck "Ask for confirmation"
- Remove Cookies for Site (optional add-on: makes it easy to remove cookies from just the tab you're viewing)
If you use Session Manager, be sure to un-check "save session cookies".
If you REALLY want privacy mode, download the Tor Button
- Click & Clean
Change settings to clear Flash/Silverlight/Java cache on browser close
- Adblock Plus for Chrome
Be sure to enable EasyList, Fanboy's List, Recommended for Chrome. Adding more will cause new pages to load very slow even on a desktop as it goes through the additional lists.
Basic blocking of only 5 sites: Google/Twitter/Facebook/Dig/Yahoo
Blocks over 500+ tracking sites - be sure to enable auto-updating and checkmark block all in settings
- redundant with Ghostery and not not for slower computers(netbooks) as it uses a little more CPU while loading the page
- Albine Taco
- Sets non-personally identifiable opt-out cookies for hundreds of sites
