What are the changes that will bring to Chrome
The upcoming changes to Chrome are as follow-
- The company will modify the ways cookies work. It also helps the developers to specify clearly which cookies need allotting to work across the web. There will be separate cookies used to track the users.
- Again, there is a requirement of developers to use this mechanism to access their cookies across the sites. This alteration will allow users to remove all such cookies from the websites. However, single domain cookies will remain unchanged, preserving user logins and settings.
- Chrome is designing to restrain fingerprinting across the web. The company is adjudicating to overcome the ways in which browsers can be passively fingerprinted. So that they identify the active fingerprinting efforts and interference as well if that occurs.
