The Technology Liberation Front has posted an information packed article entitled “Nuts & Bolts: Everything You Wanted to Know About Cookies But Were Afraid To Ask.” Describing some of the history of the World Wide Web and the development of dynamic and interactive websites, the post goes on to describe methods used to enable websites to keep track of visitors and their preferences.The article is intended to aid understanding of the usefulness of cookies to browsing, while dispelling the fear that one’s privacy is being invaded. Its conclusion is that per-session cookies and cookie alternatives are completely harmless. However, for those who remain concerned about privacy, cookies (as well as cookie alternatives) can be disabled or deleted.
