This tool was originally based on the Advertising Cookie Opt Out Plugin by Valentin Gheorghita, a Google Engineer. It has since been completely rewritten from scratch... updated by Chris Soghoian, Dan Witte, Sid Stamm, and others. Now Abine, the online privacy company, is supporting it and future versions.

"Abine's clear dedication to protecting to online consumer privacy made the decision to partner with them for TACO 3.1 a no-brainer. Users of TACO 3.1 can freely pick and choose from the other apps in the Abine privacy suite, selecting the features that work best for them.
Over the past year, TACO has grown from a proof of concept prototype to a privacy tool used by hundreds of thousands of users. Abine has the resources necessary to keep improving TACO, maintain the opt-out cookie list, and add other innovative features to enable users to protect themselves from online targeting and tracking. They'll be able to provide the kind of frequent updates, ongoing support and development that users expect from the software tools they trust."
