Not sure if this is the right section for my question, so feel free to move my post if necessary.
I've been using tabbed browsing on my home PC, since XP v7 came out, rather than opening fresh windows. But have started to wonder about the overall privacy of the two options.
Just how much of my browsing and computer set up becoms available to websites as I visit, then browse away?
If I open a new tab is it visible? Is a fresh window visible? Is a separately opened browser visible? I might as well ask, is a Firefox browser detected by an Int Exp browser and vice versa?
This question was kind of prompted when an ebay seller I had been watching joined a web forum I was on, after I opened ebay on a new tab. He was ok, and has offered us all discounts, so it's not all bad.
I have my security set for easier surfing in Int Exp and session cookies on Firefox, I also run Zonealarm, AVG virus, spyware and rootkit.
Thanks in advance for any info. I think a lot of people will be interested in this.
