    Tracking the Trackers (EU Cookie Law)

    The EU Cookie Law comes into force in the UK at the end of May so the news stories are starting to appear about it...but this one from the Guardian was a bit interesting. Tracking the trackers: help us reveal the unseen world of cookies | Technology | guardian.co.uk

    They've teamed up with Mozilla to use an add-on that will gather up the sites you've visited and the tracking they try to put back on you.

    The first results have just been released

    Interesting! Wonder what they find out - i'm not surprised to see Google (err, doubleclick) to be at the top. heh, and in that aspect of things... what about Bing? Maybe i should try that search engine... as of now, i've really 'never' used it.

    Yeah I was (stupidly) naive of how sites also pick up cookie collecting tags through using embedded content like videos and slide shares.
