Safari Trackers. ⇒

   27 February 2012, early morning

Google (and some other advertising companies) have got in some hot water over the fact they were circumventing the privacy settings of people using Safari (which defaults to not accepting 3rd party cookies). The follow-up to this article is also well worth reading, as it shoots down a lot of the PR coming from Google and from its defenders. Daring Fireball also has a good response to this story.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
