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.

True.

Money > Privacy.

People don't care about privacy if you ask around you and they forgive Google any time. I don't see many users closing their Gmail account any time soon.

I'm thinking on closing my GMail account, not for this but for the sum of all things. I will miss googlecheck, because i already close my Paypal account.
