Google Bypassed IE Privacy Settings Too

Hey Safari users, don't feel bad about Google sidestepping your browser security, they were doing it to Internet Explorer users too.

"When the IE team heard that Google had bypassed user privacy settings on Safari, we asked ourselves a simple question: is Google circumventing the privacy preferences of Internet Explorer users too?" IE executive Dean Hachamovitch wrote in a blog post this morning. "We've discovered the answer is yes: Google is employing similar methods to get around the default privacy protections in IE and track IE users with cookies."
