It's perfect, but this is a good reason to update Safari and iOS 11:

I assume you meant to say it is NOT perfect. It’s not, but it’;s really really good.

(I believe this is only part of Safari for High Sierra and iOS 11, not the updated Safari for 10.12 Sierra)

Yep, you're right. And there's some potentially excellent news for Apple here:

MORGAN STANLEY: Apple's iPhone X could steal nearly $30 billion in holiday spending from other companies

“Steal”? What an odd turn of phrase. As if “other companies” somehow “deserved” that $30 billion more than Apple. Also, they completely misquoted their own headline. The body of the story says, “Morgan Stanley’s Apple analyst Katy Huberty is expecting sales of the iPhone X to “absorb” $30 billion of discretionary spending…” “Absorb” is *much* different than “steal”.

Curious as to what makes you believe that? The article was specifically about the Sierra version of Safari 11 and the feature is actually implemented by WebKit which is supposed to be identical for all equivalent versions of macOS and iOS.

LOL Thanks. I’m pretty chill already. Not quite sure why you think I’m not.

<https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/25/16352736/macos-high-sierra-review-safari-autoplay-blocking>
"Another thing that's really nice about Safari in High Sierra is a new feature that prevents websites and ad companies from following you around the web. It does this by automatically cutting off websites’ access to tracking data left on your computer by websites you don’t regularly visit, so that advertisers can’t gather too much data on you. Some trackers will still be unavoidable, but Safari is supposed to cut out the vast majority of them."

I've also heard this on several podcasts over the last few weeks as being a feature specific to High Sierra.

It has to do with how macOS isolates the cookie store using features of 10.13 that are not part of 10.12, IIRC.
