General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=JohnHell] Wait, but, are we talking about the example about an image at imageshack? A standalone image? Truth, the image is not served directly, probably is being sent by a PHP server or ASP. You can test it by showing the source code and discovering that the source code is the image itself. If you show the source again, now you have the binary data, the real source. I've done this in the past by myself to prevent hotlinking in one of my sites. But what I'm trying to say is that the image server, this way, hasn't any script that can track you by mouse events. Could be done, of course, but in this kind of scenarios it's not usual to see a crafted page with an event listener script to show just one image as if it's standalone. What it really happens and you must concern, if the concerns are privacy, is that the PHP/ASP server is logging the access to the image because can measure with the server side script behind the whole process. And, depending on the access displays one image or another, or an error, or whatever. And to avoid this..., there is no way. But I ensure you that the mouse it's not tracked (unless what I said above).[/quote]
