Cookies

Yeah, I know, this blog stores cookies. Sadly, they are default (from WordPress), and I don’t think I can get rid of them. However, while I’m on the subject, I’ll say how you can configure your browser to disallow cookies: (*Note disabling cookies may cause problems with this blog and other websites)

Internet Explorer (8): Tools – Internet Options – Privacy (tab) – You can choose to either upgrade the setting for cookies (Medium level is the default), or click on “Advanced” and then choose cookie options. You can also allow or block cookies from a specific site if you click the “Sites” button.

Firefox (3.6.8): Tools – Options – Privacy (tab) – There you can set up rules for all cookies. You can also add exceptions for specific sites by clicking on the “exceptions” button.

Google Chrome: Tools – Options – Click the “Under the Bonnet” tab and locate the “Privacy” section, and click the “Content settings” button. Click the “Cookie settings” tab and choose your preferred settings.

Opera: Tools – Preferences (or press Alt+P to access them directly) – Click Privacy and select one of the available options.

I will also make a new page on this blog dedicated to cookies – Look for it soon 🙂
