Cookies Killer Nevercookie Provides Added Privacy - top government contractors - best government contracting eventOnline anonymity solutions provider Anonymizer, Inc. has released a beta version of Anonymizer Nevercookie, a Firefox plugin designed to fight Evercookie, a javascript API that produces extremely persistent cookies in a browser.

The free plugin can be downloaded from the Anonymizer website or from the company’s Facebook page. In the coming weeks, the Nevercookie will also be available from the Firefox Add-ons website.

“Anonymizer Nevercookie gives Firefox users the extra fire power they need to ensure that when they go into private browsing mode, they really are protected,“ said Lance Cottrell, founder and chief scientist for Anonymizer. “With Anonymizer Nevercookie, we continue our commitment to providing consumers with the latest products that help protect their privacy and identity each time they go online.“

Anonymizer Nevercookie extends Firefox’s private browsing mode by preventing persistent tracking systems from abusing both the Adobe Flash Local Storage Object and Microsoft’s Silverlight Isolated Storage. The plugin also gets rid of the manual steps required to completely remove Evercookies, while keeping all of the practical cookies a user would want to keep, such as those for browsing history and remembered logins.

When Anonymizer Nevercookie works with Firefox’s private browsing mode, the plugin quarantines an Evercookie and removes it after the browsing session, the company said.
