Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout: Facebook, Google, and several other advertising networks are using a loophole to make sure third party cookies could still be installed on Safari and Mobile Safari, even though those two browsers technically shouldn't allow such cookies. Google has already ceased the practice, and in fact, closed the loophole in WebKit itself months ago.

I generally try to avoid troll-baiting, but I'm dying to know how the pro-Apple trolls are going to twist this article into their "Thom is anti-Apple, pro-Google" mindset. I'm waiting...

Anyway, I could not agree more with the conclusion of the article:


In case the point hasn't been driven home yet - companies need to be monitored at all times. ...

If we don't, we could end up in a world of hurt.
