Is 3.1 Beta2 ushering in the death of affiliate marketing? No cookies = no refferal fees. Does the "any trace" include cookies too?
If the new version blocks affiliates by default a lot of sites will pack it in though I can't imagine Mozilla would think it's a good idea to block cookies by default. Waiting patiently to hear on the matter...
Clearing cookies when the browser is closed already exists so it's not the "new" they're talking about(see:tools/options/private data). I wonder how many millions of dollars that little checkbox has cost affiliates.

ideally they would just erase it all when the browser is closed.
As per computerWorld it works as described above
I earlier mentioned a download.ru
I guess they offer a random d-load location to balance the downloads heavy traffic, the next one when I tried again was .de

...2.x users being offered a free upgrade...
Maybe that's the next step before they offer to pay users to upgrade. ;)
Note that the upgrade choices are "Later"/ "Never"/ "Get the new version"... and that "Never" doesn't mean never.
Is it faster?
