surveillance capitalism, GOOG 

It used to be you could just blacklist the google analytics, google tags and a few other google domains and disable most of their tracking.

Now any site that allows SSO with Google is preloading login details so you can one-click login. The side effect is yet another tracking vector, and possibly exposing your google account details to any random website. It's probably trying to be secure, but that part of the browser security model has a... checkered history.

So now I have to blacklist loading 'google.com' globally and only whitelist it on sites that need it (captchas, of course) and then only temporarily.

The web is awful.
