Read further. When squid starts, it starts multiple (configurable number)
copies of the adzap script. You have no fork penalty since it's already
running. It's kinda like how apache preforks children.

Blocking cookies is best done at the browser (IMHO) where you have fine grained
control over them and can enable / disable at will. Galeon does this well.
JB was kind of flakey for me which is why I dumped it in favor of adzap. Yeah,
it's not a 100% replacement, but it does what I need it to do.
