A series of bad updates Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Ever since 3.0 this has become one of the worst extensions. I used to like this extension, it was good it did what it said it would but now... All this thing does is break websites, prevent ppl from logging in or using the internet fairly easily. One of the newest updates is the websites section where it has a few sites that it has disabled itself on, for example, ing.nl and seattlewidlifecontrol.com (yes, that's widlife not wildlife). I'm just curious how much money they're getting from/for these companies to make sure that their websites are immune to the not so helpful abine...
Edit: Btw, I don't keep my cookies to help me log in. I don't keep them at all. I'm talking about standard logging in (I'm sure you remember entering your username and password on a site?). The only thing that may not be a fact is my assumption that you are receiving money for whitelisting the websites I mentioned. But it is 100% factual that those sites are indeed whitelisted when your software is installed and then re-whitelisted (even when you had taken care to remove them) every time the software is updated. These can be found by anyone who's looked, unless of course you've changed that since September 21st. Which really wouldn't surprise me in the least since you've whitelisted sites that seemingly have nothing to do with you, certainly nothing overt.
Sorry you've had a sub-optimal experience with Abine. You're correct that TACO 2 "did just what it said it would do" and that TACO 3.0 does a lot more, including, if you request it to, help you delete and block cookies (some of which are used to help you login but can also DESTROY YOUR PRIVACY). To combat this, Abine includes an auto-login feature that gives you some of the same convenience without the loss of privacy.
As to your other accusations, they are 100% factually false. Our mission and beliefs are very clear: http://www.abine.com/about.php
