I never liked the fact that when you set the check marks for IE to 'delete all data on browser close', it did not.

With FireFox, I close the browser and everything is gone. Surfing data and cookies. And if I choose, I can make the browser appear to be another browser. :twisted:

Ever checked Flash and what it stores? http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager05.html

Which is why I have Flash turned off. I do notice that tiny little 'Flash beacon' on some sites. I just click what I want to see, but some sites do make you click the flash beacon to see a video. And you can't block third party content on else some sites or part of the Flash page is gone. Third parties are or were using Flash storage to re-create cookies.
