SpyBot Team Advice Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This what I received from SpyBot makers :
"Hello Hiryu,

I can confirm that TACO is creating those cookies instead of blocking them.
By installing TACO, these opt-out cookies are automatically installed into the Firefox browser,
and are made permanant. That is, clearing your cookies will delete all regular cookies,
but leave the non-identifiable opt-out cookies behind.

By installing this add-on, 90 advertising networks are still being supported.

And I do not call that a good add on, that is creating cookies in your browser.

Best regards
Sandra

So does it mean Mozilla is promoting BAD add-on ??

Awesome! It stops video advertisements.

I tested this at "That Guy With The Glasses" & "The Escapist." The commercials that load before the videos played about 2 seconds before they got cut-off & switched to the real video. Every video on TGWTG played the same 1 advert over & over again before I got this add-on.

It also cuts off a lot of flash adverts, but not the ones that advertise for MMORPGS (social online games).

It seems fantastic - probably to prevent legal action they still deserve, the members of the NAI have agreed to accept generic cookies saying "A Firefox User Was Here, Go try to track 'im", and give up their policy of Steal the Data and Implant the Trackers Before they even see the Site.

I can only hope that the good folks who bring us FireFox have vetted this program, and I am not handing over my life story to them by using it.

It should be fantastic, but I wish some third party (2600 Magazine, L0pht, other grey-hats and white-hats could be found to vet this thing. Then I promise to give Dan the unquestionable support he deserves (also requiring the inclusion of BOTH Google and DoubleClick and other entities spawned or purchased by the folks who have changed the definition of "evil")

Total kudos to the people behind this... a really simple idea, well executed, to ward off a pretty sneaky privacy concern (screw you doubleclick etc!). Well done lads.

Don't like the idea of tracking cookies. In fact had previously installed "google advertising cookie opt out" addon but it sucks that you have to have one addon to keep one cookie. TACO takes care of a number of networks and hopefully Daniel will keep it updated.

Success??? (Rating preliminary) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Re. my comment of yesterday. I don't know what I've done but today it works, when tested as per developers website. Let's see how it goes for a while. May have to wear sackcloth and ashes for a year. Don't mind that, however, if I turn out to be wrong.

Looks good. I use about 7 browsers of which Mozilla Firefox is my main one. I ALLOW 3rd Party Cookies ONLY ON Firefox, because their "Adblock Plus" plug-in allows me to block specific URLs, though I've to add each site site to the "Block List." The process is easy with just 2 or 3 mouse clicks. Tks. God bless us all.

Something to keep those advertisements and tracking cookies away from my browser.

Great add-on for those of use who want some third-party cookies stored but who prefer some control over what gets snuck onto our systems. Seamless integration with Firefox had no effect on browser or page loading speeds.

Way to Go Christopher!! This is going to be really popular when everyone finds out what it really does!!!! Personally, you're saving me from having to constantly "block" these cookies through my "Privacy" tab in Firefox & "Untrusted Sites" in No-Script!!!
Thanks! MrsT from Surprise, AZ

I have "accept cookies from sites", "accept third-party cookies" and "keep until: I close Firefox" all checked and the TACO cookies remain in the "show cookies" box after a Firefox restart. So I don't know what's going on with your situation. The TACO info says its 33 cookies are permanently installed in your system until the program is uninstalled so they should always be in there. I also manually clear my privacy data from time to time (browsing history, cache and cookies) and the TACO cookies still remain for me.

I recently installed the program on FF version 3.0.8 and no noticeable issues after the install. Time will tell how this app works. Thanks

Love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Took me about 5 seconds to install this super important add-on and I'm happy to report it works like Mozilla says it should. I've installed it on my computers at home and work and have told everyone I know about it.

Anyone concerned about their privacy on the Web should get the TACO add-on.

Additional privacy with no effort Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is no reason not to install this extension. You get increased privacy and security with no added effort and no negative user experience side effects.

Compare this to other extensions such as NoScript and TOR. These are both great extensions and certainly worth installing but they also make the browsing experience less convenient.

TACO is a rare security tool in that there is no downside to installing it. I recommend that you install it in every firefox installation. In a perfect world, TACO would be integrated into the default Firefox distribution.

Seems to work as advertised. No problems with it on Firefox 3.0.7 under Ubuntu.

This add-on is a most interesting element of a much wider privacy concern to which the author is committed. Nice.
