Yet Another Google Privacy Policy Violation

Not too long ago we reported on a privacy policy violation from Google; users of Apple's Safari browser were supposedly the only affected users. Now though it looks like Google might have circumventing another browser's privacy protections as well. Internet Explorer has never really been known for privacy or security, but the fact that Google intentionally circumvented privacy features is a little bit of a concern.

According to Microsoft, Google is intentionally going around their protections to gain information about where users go online. Obviously this isn't sitting well with many users, the good news is that Google has made an official response. According to Google the protections offered by Microsoft are unnecessary complications to providing a useful web experience. Google claims that the requirements make it impossible to effectively use the web, which is odd since nearly every other website has no problem with not violating the rules.
