In that same flags page you can also disallow the reading of third party cookies.
It's so fresh, there may not even be packages yet, so you'd have to compile it.
Other non-standard browsers of my readers include Opera Mini (.5%) (ok, that's the mobile standard), Seamonkey, Midori, "wg" and Playstation 3.
I think the reasons are probably the Adobe alliance allowing Google to distribute Flash with its browser and phones on the one hand and Google getting its money from advertizing. And flash ads probably just make more money. We can conclude that Chrome will probably be the last browser to include features users want but advertizers don't.
Starting with Opera 10, there is the integrated "Opera Turbo". With the
help of that proxy you not only speed up the loading of websites by 4x and
more, but you also decrease the amount of data transfered, which makes
your volume last much longer.
After a whole day of 3G web surfing, Opera Turbo had saved me 2 GB of
traffic! (Only about 100 MB were left, that 20x less!) So the first thing
after setting up 3G should be setting up Opera with Opera Turbo!
Oh and you'll probably also want to put this list into your Opera urlfilter.ini. This stops Opera from loading ads, saving you even more traffic. But you can't use save as, you must use copy & paste to get rid of the html elements in the file.
You can download the newest bleeding edge version of Opera from their Desktop Blog page.

If you use ext4, you can add some of these mount options to decrease the latency impact. But this decreases data security:
For Chrome, Google tells us we can:
From Chrome, click on the "Customize and Control Google Chrome" icon, and in the drop-down menu, select "Options"(http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/plugin/browsers.html#chrome)
Select the "Under the Hood" tab
Under "Cookie settings" select "Restrict how third-party cookies can be used
But for me it's really called "Accept Cookies only from Sites I Visit".
You can see what cookies are already installed with e.g.
find ~/.macromedia -iname '*.sol'You probably also want to disable or restrict google's cookies. And you might want to opt out of Google Analytics. A quick overview and opt-out page for the other large advertising group's cookies
strings .macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/#skype.com/settings.sol# helps to see what's inside the cookies.
is also available.
Also check how to disable Facebook tracking you on other websites. And you may just want to install the Chrome AdThwart extension.
The just released Flash 10.1 supports a mode without flash cookies if your browser supports a private surfing mode and Flash is compatible with your browser's setting. I think that's mostly Firefox.
I think the code has been improved a lot since the beginning and as KDE is already running on Windows, OS X and Linux, it's an idea that Google probably could have followed from the beginning.
IMHO Google should the very least do everything to help the KDE community to achieve that port, as without them and KHTML they would never have come this far as quickly.
I'm right now trying out the newest browser (update) out there: Opera 10 alpha.
This is Opera coming back into the league with a speedier rendering engine that's working better with online applications such as Gmail, Blogger and Google Reader. I've tested them all and I'm quite convinced.
Adobe Flash has also been ported, but is kept away from the iPhone by Apple.
So if you've wanted to buy an iPhone, reconsider. It's buggy and Apple won't let you install any software that might "duplicate" available functions. They should be honest and say software that competes with theirs.

But Secondly, it's possible and really easy with wine! Just download Firefox and install it. Then download Java and install it. Done! That easy! :) It should work the same way for Flash, etc.
Now finally I could use packstation.de in Linux!
But I think it's lean, but a true alternative and I'm writing this blog post in it - without any issues. I've tested version 0.4 in Ubuntu 8.10.
I've compiled Dillo 2.0 for Ubuntu amd64 (or "intel64") and packed with upx. It should work with other amd64 distributions as well. It does not need fltk 2.0, it's statically linked. Ssl support is missing. It didn't find my ssl library. The required libraries are:

Well, if browsers were only about pure speed and size, I guess dillo would always win. It's probably the most minimalist browser for X. And it's blazingly fast. It Opens extremely fast, it loads webpages in amazing speed. And now version 2.0 is out. Unfortunately there are no amd64 packages available, so I had to go and do it myself again. I will put them in a seperate post.
Until now it seemed Opera was the most innovative Browser out there: Tabs, Browser Sync, "Magic" Input bar, ... Opera had it first, or did it better.
In my experience Opera has been pretty good with most webpages and was faster, especially with many web pages at the same time. But it does get laggy then. And especially (Google's) web applications such as Gmail and Google Reader respond pretty slowly in Opera.
I've set up the email account, because I was bothered how long things took in Gmail. And using Firefox was not better, using both is really annoying.
I wish Opera was available with Chrome's innovative new features... Hopefully they're already working on it. And Opera Browser for the Web 2.0.
