I'm trying to use some bookmarklets that involve loading javascript from a trusted website. In particular, OpenSpritz and Squirt

I have Squirt working in Chrome, but I use IE11 for the most part. When I click the bookmarklet, nothing happens. I have tried other bookmarklets that are self-contained and they work. The problematic bookmarklets are trying to load javascript from a third-party site, also known as cross-site scripting.

How can I configure IE11 to run trusted scripts from a third-party site or even from my local hard drive?
