The only choices for Cookies in Sparta are None, Block Third Party, and All. So I'm secure in my search (except M$ can parse it for advertising money,) but every typosquatter can read my computer and write anything it wants? If you don't believe that, set IE11 to Prompt for both, don't check Always on first-party but do accept each one, and count how many cookies some sites want to set before you can move forward. If they're not reading something that they want to remember, what are they recording with each cookie? Looks as if I'm going to have to do more local coding whenever IE11 is assassinated.
