10.7: Quick Look .weblock files
Authored by: afingal on Aug 11, '11 11:15:33AM

I wonder how Quick Look handles cookies and such. Would it load cookies from Safari? What about regular cookies vs. Flash LSOs? The reason I ask is that I'm increasingly concerned about privacy issues and tracking on the web. What are the privacy implications of using this hint?

10.7: Quick Look .weblock files

Cookies are not read. So if you, for example, have a .webloc file from a forum post, where the forum requires registration, Quick Look won't be able to render the page.
The same applies for a previous hint about Quick Look links in Mail:
