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.

Wait, so it's Apple's fault that Google and FB purposely and willfully circumvented controls in Safari and said "F U" to the millions of Safari users privacy concerns so that they could continue to make money? Really?

So I guess if someone breaks into your home, by circumventing your alarm/locking mechanism, eats your food, cooks in your kitchen, and rapes your mom....its your fault for having circumventable locks...right?
