comment Why does my browser connect to unknown third party sites when I visit different webpages?
While 3rd party requests are not necessarily dangerous, they are rarely useful to you, often relating to advertising and/or for tracking your surfing habits across multiple websites. If this worries you (as it does me), then you should consider using the Ghostery phugin to block them. addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery

Good answer. To clarify your second point, use of a 3rd party library would only elicit a request to another site if the library is being served from a CDN, which is often a good idea for performance.

comment Routing a personal laptop through a company machine
Thanks for your thoughts. I think that ICS is disabled on this machine by group policy. I go to Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties > Advanced tab, but only Windows Firewall Settings is available. Could I achieve the same using a Network Bridge?
