Without the extension, aren't the cookies still there until after I close the browser fully?So the extension is obsolete
Example scenario using Chrome browser:
Watching Netflix and decide to check Gmail on another tab. I'm done with Gmail so I log out and close the tab. Then I decide to browse for some electronics on Amazon. Done with browsing and I log out from Amazon and close the tab. I continue watching Netflix.
Wouldn't Google and Amazon cookies still be there until I close the browser fully?
Would my Amazon session be able to obtain data from cookies from Google and Netflix? In the same line of thought, Google would have had access to Netflix cookie, and Netflix would have access to Google's and Amazon's cookies.
At least that's my train of thought.
I do know there's Strict Isolation in Chromium based browsers but haven't read up on the feature fully.
Firefox has container functionality but I don't think there is a similar concept in Chrome/Chromium.
