This ***** so bad, the cookies on Safari are not being blocked on my Mac Lion 10. 7.5? What's going on. I can be on for 2 minutes and not visit a website but still have 45 cookies including one saved to my local cache. I though Macs were supposed to be better than this.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Safari

    Do you have a question?

     

    If it's about blocking cookies, then may I assume you have disabled all cookies via Safari preferences; that the browser is set to block cookies always?

     

    If you're concerned about tracking (I don't know why you're asking about cookies), you could choose to enable and use Private Browsing option. 

     

    Realize too that there are other and very effective ways to track clients without cookies; whether using Flash Cookies or so-called super-cookies or via EFF's Panopticlick techniques.
