The Chromium team and Google are working on a new feature to block third-party cookies, among other things. Also to prevent information from being collected by small elements embedded on web pages. This feature is called Google Privacy Sandbox.
This new standard aims to separate first-party cookies from third-party cookies and delete the latter, thus improving privacy. It is still all in the early stages and the Chromium team is also still looking for improvements that the community can contribute.
The first settings for this have already appeared in Google Chrome, but still without a function. In the 89.0.4353.0 there was already the flag "Privacy Sandbox Settings", but still without effects. Now in 89.0.4364.1 the Privacy Sandbox appears under Settings -> Privacy and Security when the flag is activated.
In the new window the window appears but without functions. A link leads directly to the Chromium page with more information. It is expected that this new function will then be completely finished in 2022.
It will be interesting to see how the Chromium team and Google will implement this new function and what advantages it will have compared to the previous possibilities.
