Thanks for the input. My point exactly. Most users aren't going to
completely close TBB after visiting google sites. I imagine even a very
large % of Tor users, much less avg internet users, have ever read
users, etc. Your point is well taken, but I doubt a majority of TBB
users will close the browser, after they leave a google site & make sure
that all google cookies are deleted (ALL google pages & probably sites
linked from google pages).
One could use some cookie mgr addon that allows for temporary cookies,
that are deleted when a web PAGE is closed, but most won't do that either.
Of course, this may be the least of worries for users of TBB or any
other anonymity software / methods. I assume at this point, TBB devs
aren't concerned about google (or any other) tracking cookies, or else
TBB wouldn't come w/ cookies enabled by default. I'm not sure why they
wouldn't be concerned - maybe there's good reason. I don't know the
answer to that.
