Google is now using google.com domain for embedding Youtube and javascript libraries– can now track you all over the WWW

Haven’t confirmed this but if true, it should hit more mainstream outlets in a bit:

Embedded youtube videos and javascript libraries now redirect to a path under http://www.google.com – capturing all your google.com cookies, your account ID if you’re logged in and all your search history if you’re not logged in but enable cookies(basically everyone). The only safeguard against massive privacy invasion was the fact that cookies meant for googleapis and googleanalytics did not get sent to google.com – now they do. Skynet is finally here: Google is controlling every single thing anyone does on the World Wide Web. RIP Privacy on the web.

via Google is now loading JS libraries from www.google.com – Tracking you all over the WWW including your ID if you’re logged in. : privacy.
