Cookies and GMail
By avalon on Jul 30, 2007
For a long while, I've been using GMail but have been keeping the privacy implicatins at bay by restricting what cookies I accept to mail.google.com (or gmail.com.)
Now a login to gmail requires me to accept cookies from .google.com. That's not quite so comfortable a thought!
By moving GMail services under www.google.com, it is now no longer as easy to distinguish between the cookies you want (ie those required for GMail) and those you don't want (those Google wants you to have while you search.)
