Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
This is a visualization tool that shows how sites can learn about you; it begins with first/third-party cookie tracking (showing which first-party sites facilitate tracking and which third-party sites actually track you cross-site), and builds upon that. Additionally, this tool will provide an interface to easily delete cookies and other state information for sites that you don't trust.
2. Users & use cases
Quantifying how much web sites know about you is hard. This tool will help figure that out and act upon the sites you don't trust.
- Alice has turned on the DNT header, but wants to know if sites are honoring it. One way to check is to see if she's still being tracked (but measuring that is hard). This tool helps visualize who's got your cookie info.
- Bob doesn't want to disable cookies, but periodically wants to delete cookies from third parties who he encounters on many web sites. Making a list and blocking cookies from just those sites is hard (since he has to maintain it himself). Opening this Tracking Map and clicking on the sites whose cookies he wants to block is much easier.
- clear what the graph/map represents.
- actionable (you can do more than just learn with it).
- efficient (no perceived slow-down for those who don't use the tool)
- accurate (must not misrepresent sites as "malicious" if they're not)
- This is not a block-list for cookies
- This is not a replacement for the site-based prefs
- This is not a tracking protection list
- This is not a complete visualization of your entire web experience
