Recently it was reported that Google bypasses the security setting in Apple's Safari so it can more easily track users. Microsoft read the report and had a funny thought: What if Google was doing the same thing to IE?
Turns out it is.
IE now has a feature where only third parties that have given the W3C a P3P Compact Policy Statement are allowed to use tracking cookies. Google, in essence, works around this and collects information without disclosing what it plans to do with it.
Google claims the P3P spec is out of date, and it is open about how it handles privacy.
