Fresh Cookies in 7 minutes or less – the crumbly truth tracked down

A nasty warning comes as you proceed but I have never had a problem. If you think about the meaning of  “changing website behavior,” yes, that’s right. Your intent IS to change website behavior. The murky and loophole-ridden jargon of user agreements comes to mind here. Not a lie but in this case it’s clearly intended to frighten.

Go ahead.

Thirteen minutes later, my screen shows the 202 cookies that were back after 6 or 7 minutes. Ama-zing! Cookies beget cookies as myriad marketing partnerships in an unregulated universe of industrial-grade information gathering gets down to work. In a matter of a week thousands of cookies and caches will accumulate and will be in constant conversation behind the scenes of your web browsing. You can cut down on this sharing of information about your internet life by “cutting the cookies.”

I recommend you cut the cookies early and often.
