    Perhaps that would be a futile effort as the hosts are most probably connected by host name, not by IP address, i.e. that is not static.

    Does it have something to do with HTTPS?
    Not per se.

    How about those sites that are now posting a notice on their pages notifying you that their site requires the use of cookies, and continuing to use the site means you will accept their cookies. Do they have a method of changing your settings or are they storing their cookies in another location like Flash does?
    There is a difference between general cookies and so called "evercookie":

    I thought I should share this. Not sure if it applies to openSUSE's build (any idea how to check?)
