Google has started implementing its plan to restrict third party cookies on its Chrome browser. A third party cookie is a cookie used by someone other than the website provider, and is often used by advertisers to track users as they go from one site to the next. As a longtime user of Firefox and Ublock Origin, I haven't been exposed to third party cookies for a long time. It's good that they're going away. What's more controversial is how they'll be replaced, because Google more than anyone depends on two things: advertising, and tracking users.
