Third Party Cookies

leave a comment »

GRC gathers some nice statistics on the use of Third Party Cookies also known as Tracking Cookies. I was amazed by the browsers which have TPC enabled by default, there is nothing immediately dangerous about having TPC enabled. However they have serious implications on the privacy and anonymity, they also make it possible for websites other than the one you are visiting to track you over multiple websites.

I run FireFox 3, but disabled TPC as soon as I installed it.
