    Well here it is....... Both FIrefox and IE are releasing a new version of their broswers that is going to automatically delete cookies!!

    This is going to kill or really hurt alot of marketeers.

    This is why google brought out google chrome. Because IE is practically fuking google over with this new browser

    The question is, how are websites like oh-myspace,facebook,youtube,google, etc.etc.
    supposed to function without the use of cookies?

    More so, if this is true then there goes clickbank,the epn, etc. etc. it would go beyond just cookie stuffing, it would mean an end to the only (current) way of tracking affiliate sales.

    Thanks for posting these, interesting articles to be sure. I'll be curious to see what effect this has on people like us, and even regular internet marketers.
