Would save time wiping them manually. The way I'm bombarded by ads for trading products and offers from "women in my area" when surfing the Webz some days feel like Tom Cruise in that scene from "Minority Report" (“Welcome back, Mr. Yamamoto")

Do you know if Ghostery also detects Flash Cookies?

In case it does not, I can suggest the free browser addon called "BetterPrivacy". It detects cookies created by flash applications and deletes them automatically.
