Windows 10's new "install on my devices" Store feature

Third-party cookies are still widely used on today's Internet to track users across browsing sessions and sites they visit. While the reach of the tracking depends on the popularity of a service -- it needs to be implemented in as many sites as possible -- it is fair to say that if you allow third-party cookies to roam freely you will be tracked.
