NEW YORK (AP) - A new tool seeks to make your searches more private by hiding them in plain sight. TrackMeNot periodically sends fake, innocuous queries to search engines, making it harder for someone to glean your actual search habits by reviewing the companies' logs that contain your queries.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://apnews.myway.com//article/20060830/D8JR04TO2.html" target="_blank">http://apnews.myway.com//article/200...D8JR04TO2.html</a>

Speaking of Firefox... back in v0.7 there was an option that would ask you before setting cookies. I would just deny them from any sites I didn't want. The new versions don't have that, its all-or-nothing crap. Yes I want yahoo to set whatever cookies it wants, no I don't want to accept cookies from random sites - no I dont want to type in anything manually. >.<<br><br><br><br>
Yet another reason why Firebird 0.7 was better then this crap.

Are you sure? I think there's an option to have a prompt every time you visit a site.
