You can also block with exceptions too like when sas finds one or 500 hundred :)
Like I said before, you have to jump through hoops to do what IE11 can do with a couple of mouse clicks.

Hi,
All that is needed to do is a simple copy and paste
Once you see the cookies select it
It will show the domain
Highlight it and copy.
Go to the exceptions and paste and select block or allow.

I'm spoiled by how easy it is in IE. I understand the procedure but feel it is an unnecessary pain in my ample asset, especially since one used to be able to do it the same way as in IE. Considering how many cookie planting attempts are made during a typical browsing session, I could die of old age (I'm close enough to that already) dealing with the misbegotten cookies (why does EVERY website feel they simply have to put a cookie on my computer?).

If one selects 'Never Remember History' in FF, it might help with cookies.

I don't get cookies in FF. Well maybe a couple in a month. I run SAS and CC several times a day and find no cookies stored on my systems.

Using CC before shut down removes what cookies their are on my systems.

C is for Cookie

Cookies are a cheap method of advertising. Plus they help load pages faster on slower systems (or so we are told). Alas, they have been so badly abused and manipulated that they are vast becoming more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Becoming a nuisance? Heck, they are there already.

I used to use an Add-on called Cookie Monster in Firefox.

This would block things like third party cookies and automatically delete other cookies after a short period of time or when you closed Firefox (you could also add sites to a 'cookie whitelist' which would not be deleted - handy for forums or other sites that you wanted to stay logged in to).

I found this was the best solution to sites (usually news sites) that would give you a "No Cookies" or "Cookies Must Be Enabled" message if you blocked all cookies and would not allow you to view content unless you allowed cookies.

I'm now using Pale Moon instead of Firefox and I'm using an add-on called Cookies Exterminator which does the same thing as Cookie Monster did in Firefox (Cookie Monster wasn't supported in Pale Moon for some reason last time I checked).

Unfortunately I need to run Chrome and Java for my TAFE training courses.

Fortunately I have VMware so I run them in a VM.

Speaking of google

There's an interesting little discussion about Google in Level One Techs this week.
