[FoRK] awesome firefox extension

note that this doesn't work, well, with the 'newer' releases of gmail
yet, and also it is actually supported by google because you'll notice
that by default it doesn't do anything to help your privacy. i do love
it though.

but i don't believe the cookie randomisation actually works.

for example, if i log in to gmail.google.com, it still recognises me
at www.google.com.AU (note country-specific domain). massive privacy
invasion, imho, and one of the reasons i've now moved to yahoo for

i'd be wary using this extension for any real privacy reasons ...
