It would get rid of the tracks from your computer, but not from the all mighty internetz.

The digital boogieman strikes again.

I always love how we get told tracking cookies are programs, when they are far from it, its like any other cookie, it identifies you to the website or in this case the metrics, so they can target computers, not the IP.

If these tracking cookies are viruses, then OCN is giving us viruses when we click stay logged in.

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):

Firefox:
- BetterPrivacy 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
- Refcontrol 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 & http://browserspy.dk/fonts-flash.php)
- Redirect Remover Removes redirect tracking from urls
- TrackMeNot 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.
- NoScript - 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 add-on and instead of using Tor, run your own local proxy that just uses your normal connection. The add-on has many useful javascript neutering and browser spy masking tools within it.


Chrome:
- 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.
- Disconnect Basic blocking of only 5 sites: Google/Twitter/Facebook/Dig/Yahoo
- Ghostery Blocks over 500+ tracking sites - be sure to enable auto-updating and checkmark block all in settings
- Chromeblock - 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
- FlashBlock
- NotScripts - Chrome version of NoScript with limited blocking. It can't block inline javascript but attempts to block some.
- about: plugins - Disable Java manually until needed

Hi All,
Let's see wired cars, "traffic" cameras, sniffer programs, site trackers, keystroke capture programs, cell phone tracking, smart cards........PRIVACY, what privacy?!?!
Ever heard of a book called 1984 by George Orwell? If this is what we know about I wonder what's out there that we DON'T know about. There are so many ways to track peiople it's not even funny.

Recreating is the problem, no? If it can't recreate the cookie it has to assign a new ID each instance wouldn't it?

I'm a smidge confused if this actually defends against KISS's tool.
