Google Chrome’s cookie ban is good news for Google — and maybe your privacy

Google’s plan to eliminate third-party cookies from its Chrome browser by 2022 is bad news for many digital advertisers.

It might, in certain ways, be good too for users who don’t want advertisers tracking them and their activities all over the internet.
