You guys may be wondering what the "blue circle" is in recent screenshots (see below).
It is a feature of Internet Explorer called Tracing Protection. It allows users to block third party content from the site. Here is a quote from Microsoft as taken from their FAQ on TPL (tracking protection list): "Tracking Protection Lists are like “Do Not Call” lists for third-party content on a website. By adding a Tracking Protection List or “Tracking Protection List,” you can control whether your information is sent to third parties listed on the Tracking Protection List." TPL can be used as adblockers to block ads. Just add any of the tracking protection lists from one the list on the following site: http://iegallery.com/en/trackingprotectionlists/.
