    Adobe has finally made moves to improve 'cookie' management and privacy in its much maligned Flash Player. The area of focus is the local storage feature in Flash Player, which stores what are often mistakenly referred to as 'Flash cookies', said Emmy Huang, group product manager for Flash at Adobe, in a blog post. Local storage in Flash is not unlike cookies, as it is made up of local shared objects and removes the need to draw content away from a web site's servers. The stored load is typically small, however, according to Huang.
