This is how it looks like when viewing what cookies a website is using

 

cookies.png

 

you see they are detailed, shows the exact URLs and addresses.

 

now this is how it looks like when viewing what trackers are being blocked on a website

 

track.png

 

 

You see it's so Vague and unclear, you don't see any URLs, just Adobe, Google etc.

doesn't say which Google or Adobe addresses are blocked.

 

My suggestion: create 2 viewing preferences for Tracking Prevention in here edge://settings/privacy

 

One Simplified and the other Advanced

 

  1. The Simplified viewing will be like how it is now, only shows names like Adobe, Google, Facebook
  2. The Advanced viewing will show exactly which URLs from Adobe, Google and Facebook got blocked, the exact addresses.

 

here is an image from ublock origin adblocker to show you an example
