A Needed Stimulus?
Reading this I was spurred to delete most of the cookies on my PC, something I had not done for a while. Apart from making me feel better it probably gains me little but, life is all about feelings.

Out of control
I do understand that many of the nets free features are in-fact not free but paid for by monitoring my on-line habits. However, after a single day of browsing, the number of tracking cookies loaded is unbelievable. Many of these having nothing whatsoever to do with the websites and the content I have viewed. I think rather than an opted in system, browsers should come with a feature whereby we can store the ones we wish to keep such as login cookies, shopping cart etc. but automatically delete everything else when we exit.
