The cookie used for the persistent login on this site could be considered a tracking cookie, yet it's rather harmless.
What I do, is set Firefox to allow only session cookies, but also to ask for each new cookie. That way, I can allow specific ones to be permanent, and the rest get deleted when I close Firefox. Simple, elegant, and effective.
I ran Ewido and found 38 issues of tracking cookies that were all connected to my Firefox profile.
It didn't find any connected to the other browsers that I use..Why only Firefox? (1.5.04)
Is there a program out there that I can use to stop this?
