• Google plans changes to cookie management, enhances privacy

    Google enhancing privacy? We'd never have thought we'd hear that from the data hole that is Google.

    Google's plan to replace web browser cookies with a system that shares less data with advertisers is being investigated in the UK.

    Cookies are small files a web browser stores on a user's device when they visit a webpage.  They can be used to remember what items a person has added to their online basket and deliver personalised content. They can also be used to track somebody's activity online and deliver targeted advertising.
