Wow, quite a bit of reactions, seems to be a hot item
Well, I have stopped using fuckb...ehrm facebook a long while ago and I cleared all pictures from my timeline. Still, it is there to avoid someone nabbing my identity and setting up an account with my name (been done before, not nice, not destructive either, but still...)
I use startpage.com (ixquick in the UK) for my preferred search engine--been using it for years.
So do I, that and the page of Manjaro Linux, cant go wrong there
Never heared of duckduckgo..I'll give it a whirl
I am actually interested in comments on this approach. Like, what kind of damage limitation am I actually achieving by isolating the cookies in a VM?
From what I always heared, if it's in a VM it's in a padded cell... hehe
Been to the page, after this post, I went out n "ixquicked
" (hehe) and found this page
(amongst others) to aid with the problem...
The stir is that facebook has drastiocally changed its tracking policies, and, if you were to visit say someone's fb page, or a less (yea, even less
) reputable site, it leaves traces...that is messy...
Either, I set up a policy in the guest account of my PC (dont like that realy - it feels as if you tie up the guests) or figure out a way to mop the floor after the fight... hehe
Face it, facebook has those blasted buttons everywhere on sites...so..message is "dont click!
" - eh, go tell that to a facebook junkie like your nephew....
