I love BetterPrivacy! It does exactly what I want, and gives me full control over which LSO's to keep or delete.
I have to disagree with Al, a reviewer further down. I did search my PC when I first tried BetterPrivacy, and it found all LSOs stored under my username.
BetterPrivacy *does* search my '/sys/' folder by default. I know this because settings.sol is saved in the sys folder while other LSO files are stored in a folder outside of 'sys'. On my PC, the path is:
Settings.sol is the *only* LSO that is ever saved at this location, and it's only saved at the location when I change default settings via Adobe.com's site. Al, perhaps your PC setup is the problem. You mention LSO files stored in locations that should not be accessible from the web. If your security settings allow access (read, write and/or execute) to all the areas mentioned in your review, then you should seriously take a look at your PC's security.
BetterPrivacy is simply awesome. I actually use Chrome on my sites now because it's faster. However, I leave Firefox open in another window. The second a site plants a flash file on my PC in my Chrome window, BetterPrivacy alerts me in the open Firefox window, even though I am not actively using Firefox. It's simply amazing!
Anyways, awesome add-on! Thanks for opening my eyes to the Super Cookie world.
