Not limiting its tracking to iDevices, Google has also bypassed Internet Explorer's privacy settings, getting around the search engine's cookie restrictions, according to Microsoft. "Microsoft says that Google is improperly representing its cookies by using a non-standard P3P cookie policy statement: it claims that 'Google's P3P policy is actually a statement that it is not a P3P policy,' which allows Google's cookies to pass through without being blocked," writes T.C. Sottek of The Verge. Last week Google got flack for similar illicit user-tracking on iPhones, but, hey, that's just what tech companies do nowadays
