Web Upgrade HTML 5 May Weaken Privacy

From The New York Times: Web Upgrade HTML 5 May Weaken Privacy

The article suggests that using HTML5, “advertisers and others could, experts say, see weeks or even months of personal data. That could include a user’s location, time zone, photographs, text from blogs, shopping cart contents, e-mails and a history of the Web pages visited.”

And you wonder why I have grown to hate advertisers? The days of my late good friend Carl Weber, someone who would never have dreamed of forcing his work onto anyone, are long gone. Now we have advertising marketers who are so intrusive they border on breaking-and-entering.
