Despite Mozilla's massive amount of funding, large developer team,
and proven ability to innovate, I suspect you're going to reject any
suggestion I offer that would require them to invest more than one
programmer-day of work. So I'll start dead simple:
How about blocking cookies that are known to be of no use to the
Even just one. Pick one single cookie that tracks users and
provides no benefit, and block it. This would be better than
nothing, but they don't do it.
By putting in more than one programmer-day of effort, this could be
well done. Maybe maintain a very conservative list of bad cookies
(I think there's already a similar feature about a list of phishing
sites to avoid, so maybe this idea could be implemented similarly),
and block them. Maybe block DoubleClick's cookie?
mozdev for "privacy", I get 215 hits. Most aren't
about online privacy, but there must be some ideas in there that
aren't too hard to implement or adapt.
