I've just come across an interesting (to me anyway) discovery and was wondering if anyone had more information before I stick myself head-first in to my web traffic.
I'm coding a new version of an old web-based app (wanted to be a developer before I saw the light, now I'm responsible for my old apps...). I'm running TamperData under Firefox 3 to fake some of my input to see how the system responds. Up pops a post request I wasn't expecting passing a cookie ID to static.cache.l.google.com.
Now I can't find the referenced cookie on my system to see what info is held, likewise I can't find any information on the web (in hindsight using Google may not be the smartest move I've made today). This request has only been sent once so I can't determine how regularly I am/have been providing this info to Google but it has me slightly miffed. I'm sure that this would have been mentioned in the extensive and readable license agreement I read thoroughly before signing my life away agreeing to the conditions.
If anyone has any info or knowledge of this I'd be interested to here from you, might save me a few hours that could be put to more productive use (Like Lego Star Wars......)
Thanks in advance,
