3rd Party Cookies

In Firefox 2.x Mozilla removed the ability to block 3rd party cookies… overall that was a bad decision for them.
It seems that Netscape 9 allows you to block 3rd party cookies. The “For originating site only” option is vital for online privacy as it prevents banner ad providers from leaving cookies.

    the only thing opera doesn’t have is a fully compatible browser engine or a password manager that lets you view your passwords 🙂

    Acid2 is a general reference layout test…. even firefox has passed it (early v3 builds). The true test is a ajax heavy web app.

    With opera you don’t even get the new gmail version, Google Docs is read only, Many Other ajax heavy sites dont run properly. Opera is too standards strict… to survive on the web you need qerks complient brower.

    The strict browsers can’t view all sites… for that very reason i have to use Netscape 9 (its a fixed up faster and more stable firefox) because safari 3 has site compatability issues.

    Don’t try to tell me that Opera is more compatable…. In my tests (Not a BS render test) Gecko based browser is more compatable.
