What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.
We suggest you install the latest version of one of these browsers:
I couldn’t find a FAQ section but it would be nice to no which options not to chose when running Ccleaner or other tidying up software. at the moment my machine is holding onto to a chunk of firefox cache and i’m keeping all history and cookies. what do i need to keep to enable saved games?
The cache is a place where webpages, images, and other web content you’ve viewed in the past get stored on your computer. That way when you go back to one of these things, it can be loaded super-quickly. It also reduces strain on websites. Clearing this should never affect how anything works majorly other than perhaps making some webpages load slower.
Cookies are little bits of data that are stored on your computer. When you visit a website that created the cookie, your computer sends it to the website so the website knows what kinds of settings you set previously, that you are logged in, something to identify you so you can be tracked, etc. Flash cookies are slightly different, in that they can only be created by flash files. However, their function is more or less the same. When you clear the cookies on your web browser, it deletes the regular ones and the Flash ones, which will delete all your game progress. the tricky thing is that regular cookies vary across browsers – so if you clear firefox’s cookies, chrome’s cookies will still be left in place. However, this might not hold true for Flash cookies, so if you clear cookies on any browser, it may delete your game progress from every game across every browser.

Been there, done that. :/ It’s really not worth it.
encountered a website where clearing both cache and cookies was REQUIRED so the game would actually LOAD on slower machines like mine.
Sent them and angry e-mail , signed a petition for a less graphics-intensive version and showed the middle finger to their company logo.
