No, we are not making this up.  Just exaggerating a bit.

XBIZ newswire, “Adult entertainment industry news for the media” – a division of, “The leading source for adult industry news” – reports on the paper “An Empirical Study of Privacy-Violating Information Flows in JavaScript Web Applications.”

We cannot in good conscience quote from the XBIZ article in this family-oriented blog, but you can read it here.  We will note, however, that based upon extensive research, Sorin and his UCSD colleagues recommend Chrome and Safari for surfing porn.
