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.

Interesting article

Thanks. Off topic, is it just me, or are your 'latest reviews' from 2009 somewhat, erm, obsolete?!
