Both browsers have Do Not Track turned on and of course the bookmarks in different browsers are different, but I have the same 36-digit ID in both. So you guys aren't really into that whole privacy thing that's going on, I guess? Isn't that what cookies are for, so you don't have to have all that slop in the address bar?

I'm not 100% positive, but I believe this is related to some of the multivariate testing we run. In many cases, we move some content blocks around, or have a different order on things. It shouldn't compromise your privacy at all, nor should it have any personal information attached.
