Firefox 22 will block 3rd party cookies by default

Quote:
Jonathan Mayer, a researcher at Stanford, has contributed a patch for Firefox that will block third-party cookies from installing on the user's browser. The patch is set to be incorporated into Firefox 22. For some sense of timing on the project, Firefox 19 was released on Tuesday.

Would not that break thousands of websites that relies on cookies?
Besides, cookies are no security problem at all, so I don't see the point.

Increase a whole version number because changing an opt-in feature to opt-out is such a massive change. Mindblowing.

All browsers have the capability of forbidding third-party cookies, they're just off by default. I personally have third-party cookies blocked and I've never had a case of websites not working.

I have Opera set to block 3rd party cookies. I don't mind a cookie from the site I'm visiting (they get deleted on closing anyway), but 3rd party cookies are from sites you have not visited. A Guy
