Why doesn't disabling Third Party Cookies block authentication sites, LiveID, OpenID, etc.
Trying to not make this political, but I need to explain my motivation to assist those who may answer this.
I had been watching the Google/Verizon anti-net neutrality power grab for awhile. Unhappy with their announcement I've decided it was time to not reward Google by passively opting into their data mining efforts.
My assumption was that switching search engines and turning off Third Party Cookies would be a good step.
What confuses me is that authentication sites like LiveID, OpenID, etc still work. Can someone explain why this is the case? I would have thought that as they're different domains it wouldn't work.
