Extremely persistent cookies

Think you know how to clear your cookies when you are browsing?

Think you know all the ways that web sites track you and where your browsing takes you?

You haven't even begun to learn about the subject unless you read this marvelous article by Ashkan Soltani about how modern web sites use combinations of cookies, Flash Stored Objects, HTML 5 local storage, stored Javascript, and cache ETags to track your activity.

Thorough, detailed, clear, well-presented. Just what you want from a technical article.
