Google released the Chrome 116 stable version update today. The most noteworthy adjustment is to further abandon traditional third-party cookies and further promote its own “Privacy Sandbox”.
It was previously reported that Google plans to eliminate third-party cookies from all browsers in the second half of 2024.
Google said that the Privacy Sandbox program aims to develop technologies that can achieve the following goals: not only protect users’ online privacy but also provide companies and developers with tools to develop digital businesses so that everyone can easily access open networks and applications.
Another noteworthy improvement in the stable version of Chrome 116 is “one-time permissions”.
After a user visits a website, he can select “Allow this time” (Allow this time) for a function (such as location or microphone) requested by the website.
